Hello, I'm Sueanne Shirzay. Welcome to my colorful world!
My mission is to make all people that wear my jewelry feel beautiful and have it be an extension of their own creativity! Sueanne Shirzay Jewelry started in 2008.
My story: I was raised in Indiana and moved to NYC for art school and never left! I started as an art director for newspapers and magazines, and went on to own my own ad agency and an art gallery. At the gallery, I sold paintings, photographs and handmade jewelry made by talented artisans.
One of the jewelry artists wanted to teach a class, so I said SURE, fine! ... and then all my friends signed up. They insisted I join even though I thought I had no skills in the area AT ALL. Chardonnay and a Sundance catalog in hand, I started the class and got immediately hooked. I wanted to make jewelry all day every day from that moment on.
I can honestly say as I celebrate 11 years that it is the best job I've ever had because it never feels like a job. I have met the best women and men while going about this wildly creative endeavor and I love it!
Thank you for supporting me and handmade jewelry.
