Susie Frances Jewelry
Artist: Susie Frances Aoki
My work is mostly sterling silver, but I also enjoy using gold, copper and brass for added color and dimension. I cut and shape the metals by hand, and then use both traditional techniques and handmade tools to texture them. Afterwards, I give everything an oxidized finish to emphasize the color and texture of the metals. And finally, I often add colorful gemstones for accents.
