“Out of the Box” by Susanne Petermann & “Bead Embroidery” by Stephanie Gould
“Out of the Box” by Susanne Petermann
Like the surprising combination of words in a poem, a collage (an assemblage of disparate images) can evoke a mood, please the eye, tell a story, and carry a hundred interpretations. In 1995 a life-threatening medical situation inspired me to make collages to express deep emotion and reflect my inner landscape. They often become a springboard for spontaneous writing as I explore its characters, just as I would a dream.
When I am not making collages, I work as a personal organizer, helping people keep their homes and businesses running smoothly. I am also a poet and translator, preparing to publish my translations of Rainer Maria Rilke’s French poetry.

Bead embroidery, usually around a stone center piece and finished with stone or pearl embellishments. All my work is backed with real leather.The jewelry line includes necklaces, earrings, lapel pins and hair barrette.
