Welcome to Suz Jewelz
I have always had an intuitive connection with design. Color, texture, movement, and materials move me …inspire me. Because my jewelry design tends to be more of a joyful heart at play than a wholly intellectual process… often it has led me to unpredictable but delightful little twists and turns. I hope you will agree.
Much time, and often extended physical effort, is spent creating these works for you – consequently a little bit of my soul becomes a part of each piece … a true labor of love.
Because of its radiant beauty, copper is my metal of choice. You have the option to allow the metal to naturally patina or to maintain its shiny brilliance with an occasional lemon/water rub. These skin flattering copper pieces are often adorned with semi-precious gemstones and are hand hammered, wrapped, or woven…along with other methods of wire working. I prefer to make my own findings so the clasps, chains and links are handmade by me.
While copper is my favorite medium I occasionally work with other metals… and when the mood strikes, I enjoy the wonderful feel of polymer clay. These playful clay designs are fun to wear and always unique.
Each piece is hand crafted in my Nashville area studio and are always one-of-a kind.
