“As a young girl, my grandfather taught me his trade of gold and silver plating. I spent summers in his workshop fascinated with his craft,” Susan McVicker relates as she explains how she got into the jewelry business.
“Fast forward about 30 years. While I was helping my mom clean out her house, I found a shoe box full of my grandfather's plated coins. After making bezels and braiding leather, I gave the finished pieces to my sisters and family members. Then, I settled into my dream career as a jewelry designer.”
Each piece is hand crafted utilizing freshwater pearls, precious stones, metals, exotic skins and leather to create one of a kind designs. “Metal working and leather crafting collide to shape truly collectable pieces,” Susan says.
