Sue describes her "light bulb" moment with jewelry making in 2008 when she felt a sense of excitement and purpose, "it helped set on the right road to gaining myself back." [sic] Being on medical leave since 2007, Sue had tried a few different crafting projects before finding her niche in making simple bracelet and earrings, selling them on her website. She now has over 100 followers on her blog, where you can find all sorts of custom pieces she's made on commission, favourite handmade finds around the internet, family life, personal scribbles and inspirations for creation!
Although she works primarily with gemstones and sterling silver, she'd like to open up to other possibilities in settings and materials, as well as expanding the Hello Gorgeous jewelry line, with thoughts of a "fashion collection and a glamourous collection" [sic]. Sue will also soon be featuring bridal and mens collections. Sue took the Bead Soup opportunity with open arms to challenge herself - let the challenge begin!
Come by Sue's blog at Hello Gorgeous and give her a wholehearted welcome to the party! We're looking forward to each others' surprises!
