Zipper Jewelry - Mora's Jeweler Spotlight



Mora is pleased to announce Kate Cusack as the featured jeweler in its Spotlight Series for the month of October. On Friday, October 6th from 5:00-8:00pm, Mora is hosting an opening reception for the exhibition. The event is free, and all are invited to attend.

"Kate Cusack creates awe-inspiring wearable art from a single and very surprising material—the zipper. Dispensing entirely with the zipper’s function to concentrate solely on its form, Cusack makes magic from this modest material. Sometimes she leaves the textile intact, layering and manipulating the zippers into dynamic new dimensions. Trimming off the textile and setting the zipper teeth on end creates a finer line for Cusack to multiply and weave into compelling compositions. Her mastery of the material is evident both in her ingenious structures and her expert craftsmanship—meticulously well-made jewelry that is truly couture. Cusack’s elegant zipper jewelry is a striking reminder of the power of imagination and the joy of discovering beauty in something we encounter every day." - Marthe Le Van, owner of Mora Jewelry

"Flourish" Zipper Necklace was selected by JoAnn Edwards for Materials: Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition.

About the exhibition from The Denton Arts Council:
"Recognized as one of the premier craft exhibitions in the country, Materials: Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition, began in 1987 and was originally initiated by area artist Georgia Leach Gough. Now in its 30th year, the exhibition opens to international artists as we celebrate the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media.
In this anniversary year, GDAC is thrilled to partner with the National Endowment for the Arts to expand this national exhibition to now include international artists. The exhibition drew over 1,400 submissions from 21 countries around the world. Juror JoAnn Edwards selected 93 works for exhibition at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center including works from Denmark, Singapore, Sweden, United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States"
