Suzanne started creating her jewelry after a beauty from ashes story and loves to create pieces that hold meaning and that her customers can purchase with a purpose. Most of her line is handcrafted by her and her small team in Birmingham, AL using new and old pieces from her buying trips in NYC and beyond. Creating in the first few years on her dining room and selling out of her mailbox for years, she now has a studio in the back of her brick and mortar Flagship Store in Birmingham, AL.
