Suzanne Jewellery

Suzanne designs and hand makes glass beads, buttons, baubles and flowers using a technique known as lampworking – ‘the art of making small objects from glass rods melted in the flame of a torch’. Suzanne's discovery and exploration of the art of lampworking has drawn her towards the use of glass as a medium to incorporate into her jewellery designs to inject colour and contrast to the other materials used. Using her silversmithing skills and the glass beads she has made, Suzanne produces a range of jewellery which includes necklaces, bracelets, earrings and cufflinks. Workshops also available from her studio in Barnard Castle in this fabulous technique.
