Design Philosophy

“Everytime His Lips Met Mine”… Brooch from the Flight of the Imagination Collection.

Design Philosophy

Suzie’s jewellery work is based around the notion of three-dimensional collage; a juxtaposition of decorative fragments, shapes, and forms, that are inspired by architectural detail and the second-hand furniture discovered in antique shops. During her design process, each individual fragment assumes an identity with its own special tale. However, the metal work also aims to evoke a surreal sense of narrative from the wearer, allowing them to delve into their own individual world of fantasy, fuelled by their own imagination. This concept is echoed in Suzie’s two-dimensional collage work, which encapsulates the essence of surrealism by integrating vintage style fragments and forms to portray a dreamlike story.
