Suzanne has been working with metals and enamel for about 10 years. She started with a metals class at Pullen Arts Center in Raleigh and took many classes and workshops with various jewelry artists from around the country.
Enamel is the process of sifting powdered glass onto copper or .999 fine silver. It is either torch or kiln fired which fuses the glass to the metal. Many of the enamel techniques she uses are self taught through experimentation and a lot of practice.
She enjoys working with different metals, sterling (.925) and fine silver (.999), copper, brass, and gold filled. Stones and handmade chains are sometimes added to accentuate a piece.
Her website is suzannelovejewelry.net if you want to see some more of her jewelry. She teaches classes and does various art shows around the area. Those are posted as well. If you have any questions or would like to have her make something especially for you, you can email her at email@example.com.
