Susannah creates contemporary jewellery and homeware in pewter, silver or gold, often combining metal with silicone, resin or wood. She is inspired by popular culture and is fascinated by the charms of everyday objects and forest fauna. Susannah studied Designed Metalwork and Jewellery at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College from 2000 to 2003 and went straight to work for Diana Porter and then Nicholas Wylde. She completed the National Association of Goldsmiths JET Gemstone course in 2006 and is now an Associate Member of the NAJ. Throughout her career, she has enjoyed evening classes in Photography, Illustration, Photoshop and Printmaking, all of which have influenced the way Susannah designs and presents her work.
‘This raised pewter plant pot with wrigglework details and an embossed windmill, is inspired by the energy produced by organisms in the soil and the energy involved in pollination, including wind power. The jesmonite interior acts as insulation, so the plant will not get too hot.’
