About Sue

Sue often begins a project by picturing herself in a specific place in history and letting the elements of that time and landscape inspire her. She begins with a series of pencil sketches, developing her ideas on paper before creating one glass jewel that encapsulates the essence of the collection. From there she explores the tones and textures of that design creating complementary jewels that form the complete collection. So, whilst they are all based on the same theme, each one is unique, so no two pieces of jewelery will ever be the same, that is why each one is as individual as you are.
