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 always begins the creation, with a series of pencil sketches, developing her ideas on paper before creating one glass jewel that encapsulates the essence of the collection.

She then 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 totally unique, so no two pieces of jewellery will ever be the same.

That is why each creation is as individual as the person wearing it.
