Hazel Smith“I’m the kid who took her dolls apart to figure out where that sound was coming from….”

Hazel Smith is a self-taught jewelry designer who curates and creates for seyoum design. If you ask her when she became an artist, she’ll tell you she’s been designing in one way or another for over 20 years.

In 2013, after being inspired by the artist community in Jersey City and after offers to sell her work in local boutiques, she created seyoum design. Many of the elements in her designs utilize new/old stock, meaning items that were manufactured for a design house, however never used or placed in circulation. They range in age from 30 to over a 100 years old.

Her current passion is constructing a unique line of statement bracelets from vintage 1960s steel chain. Upcycled and given new life, her latest project, “The Copper Line,” is being presented on HobokenArts™ for the first time.
