Suzanne Potter


From the sanctuary of her studio workshop–nestled in The Chilterns, Buckinghamshire–Suzanne intuitively designs, and meticulously produces by hand, precious metal and mixed media jewellery. Materials include: silver (oxidised details), felt, Corian, stainless steel wire, wood, paint. Inspired by her immediate rural surroundings, the 5 senses, her cherished garden, childhood memories & games,–Suzanne’s jewellery reflects 2 & 3D formulaic structures – shape / form / pattern / proportion-most obviously displayed throughout natures’ geometric repertoire.
