Born, raised, and settled in Nashville, Tennessee, Suzanne Myers comes naturally to the art of jewelry making. Her fascination began after unearthing a handful of stones in a New Hampshire mine and was sealed for good when her grandfather gave her a rock tumbler. Later, armed with the discovery that a high-speed drill could convert almost anything into pendant jewelry, life would never be the same.
Encouraged by her inordinately creative mother, Suzanne continued making jewelry through high school, and then at the University of Tennessee. Returning home with a teaching degree, she devoted herself to educating Nashville’s inner-city adolescent minds from 1993 to 2003 while establishing her wholesale jewelry business on the side. After receiving her tenyear pin, Suzanne bade farewell to her teaching position and opened a silversmithing studio where she continues to pursue her designs.
At once modern and organic, Suzanne Myers Jewelry is defined by clean, sculptural lines that exude an edgy elegance. The sensual warmth of her pieces comes from hand-formed elements designed to flatter the wearer.
“Most of my designs emerge when my ideas and raw materials collide with unforeseen circumstances. I’m propelled by the thrill of finding simple, sexy ways to connect elements to form a whole. Ultimately, each piece inspires the next.”
Popular among entertainment industry stylists, clients have included Martina McBride, LeAnn Rimes, Sharon Stone, and Faith Hill. Suzanne’s jewelry has also appeared in Accessories, Lucky, The Rage, Nashville Lifestyles, and was featured on the “What’s Hot” page of the March 2007 issue of Child magazine.
Suzanne lives in Nashville with her husband, Tennessean food columnist Jim Myers, son Arthur, and one crazy terrier named Mattie.
