The creative life brought her from Vancouver to New York City, where she worked as a designer and maker of hand-painted table accessories and Lucite jewellery. This work sparked a new love – she began studying metalworking at the Craft Students League and soon developed her own jewellery voice. Suzanne’s work is a fusion of fine craft, art and design. She creates pieces that express a personal vision counter to the conformity and generic style seen in both the produced and handmade market today. Suzanne is inspired by architectural and environmental forms and has recently begun incorporating more natural and recycled materials in her work.
