Susanne Straussner – Jeweler
My designs are primarily asymmetrical, whimsical, and incorporate humor. The pieces often take on a “personality” during the fabrication process. I love to use unexpected elements such as game pieces, plastic, buttons, and found objects. This gives my pieces a playful feeling. I prefer to use mixed metals such as copper, nickel, brass, and sterling with patina as opposed to high polish which gives my jewelry a warm, loved feeling, and character.
