Susan Lenart Kazmer

About The Teacher

Our Muse: Susan, a silversmith and artist of 20 years, is a lifelong explorer, both of the world and of life. Through her work and through the lens of mixed media – silver, glass, metal, resin, fiber and wood – she strives to tell stories of places, of experiences and of real people, living real lives. Her one-of-a-kind jewelry is crafted on the principles of Expressive Adornment: talismans, amulets, prayer boxes and gypsy magic – expressive and deeply emotional art that seeks meaning and inspires people to take leaps and embrace challenges. Susan is an internationally-recognized mixed-media jewelry artist and silversmith; her work has been included in collections from Henry Bendell, Banana Republic, and Nordstrom, as well as various national galleries and museum exhibits; it has also graced magazines including Elle, Ornament, Bead Design, and Cloth, Paper, Scissors. Susan has authored several books, including Resin Alchemy, which made the Amazon bestseller list. She is also an experienced and sought-after teacher, and has led dozens of workshops and creative experiences to explore beadwork, mosaic art, and mixed media, but also to discover (and uncover) the artistic soul.
