Please review my picture collections of recent works for some examples of my latest bright ideas.
 

Designer: Sue Rogers

Since I was a child, I have been fascinated by "sparkly rocks" and glass beads. I have been collecting these for years. Once I discovered silver, I really began having fun. I can beat on the silver and play with the torch. Then I can put the resulting shiny things with semi-precious stones or glass beads to create wonderful treasures.  I would like to share my work with you.

Background

I generally work with sterling silver and copper, forging and fabricating earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets, and pins. I often work with freshwater pearls, amber, vintage and lampwork glass beads, and natural stones. Sometimes I make pendants of fused silver to complete a particular vision. Some of my designs are inspired by ancient Greek and Roman designs, others come from squiggles that I doodle on scraps of paper.

"pods" domed silver earrings with curling vines. $70,
domed sterling silver earrings with curling "vines" and integral ear wire $65. SOLD.
I also sometimes teach jewelry-making classes, and have researched a variety of techniques for creating jewelry.  With over 40 years of jewelry design experience, I have developed a wide variety of techniques I can use to create just what you are looking for.

At various times I have been a member of the Dallas Craft Guild, Dallas Bead Society, Texas Designer/Craftsmen, Dallas Makerspace and other arts organizations.
