This talk, held during AJF’s 2018 Collectors Symposium, finds Susan Cummins and Susan Beech, who were part of the group of collectors who founded Art Jewelry Forum (AJF) in 1997, in conversation about their jewelry collections, their approach to curating them, their interest in meeting jewelry artists, and more. The conversation is moderated by David Cole, a professor at California College of the Arts (CCA).
