I'm so honored and excited to bring you a Google Hangout with artist and silversmith Susan Lenart Kazmer, the creator and owner of ICE Resin, author, fashion designer and more.
Susan comes from the art world but she has some wonderful inspiration and ideas that us crafters can use. See what she has to say about talisman, being a business person and artist, finding inspiration, and how she sees ICE Resin and the work we all do with it.
I love her thoughts on exploring, perfection, and stretching herself and the mediums she works with in order to create new work.
I get intimidated myself by some of the things I see true artists making so I love how Susan shares how we can be inspired by artists rather than being intimidated.
