Suzy grew up in Los Angeles, where her mother's creative spirit profoundly influenced her. Her mom, an adept crafter, shunned conventional art forms and encouraged her children to explore their creativity. This led to a childhood filled with handmade projects, supported by a vibrant "Craft Closet" and a home that resembled a colorful playroom. Suzy's grandfather's hardware store further nurtured her artistic side, inspiring her to create unique sculptures and wearable art from unconventional materials. Although her pragmatic parents viewed art as a secondary activity, Suzy pursued a degree in Political Science and initially worked in the movie industry. However, craving a more personal creative outlet, she eventually took up metalsmithing and model-making. This hobby turned into a successful business, with her jewelry collection, known for its minimalist design and bold colors, gaining recognition for its unique blend of mid-century influences and modern flair. Suzy's work focuses on gemstone-centric designs, often featuring warm gold alloys and satin finishes, and she particularly enjoys creating distinctive rings. Her collection caters to a woman who values timeless, unique statement pieces, and is handcrafted entirely in New York City.
