ABOUT SUSAN VON ZAHN
If you are a person who, like me, is totally obsessed with and constantly distracted by gemstones and jewellery, you will completely understand why I do what I do. I would be the first to say that I could never ever have enough jewellery so, if you are the same ….
I get it!
It all started in early 2005 when, as a hobbyist silversmith, I visited India for the first time to buy some stones. I was so beguiled by the colours and textures of the country that visiting and buying stones became a twice-a-year pilgrimage from then on. When I am faced with a pile of gemstones, the decision isn’t “What shall I take home with me?” rather it is always “ What could I bear to leave behind?”
The journey has been wonderful, I’ve met and worked with some amazing people along the way and have so many stories to tell …..
Another love and passion is Nature and the African Bushveld. I am fortunate enough to have had some wonderful bush experiences and this has inspired another branch to my jewellery-making. The Wild Collection is the manifestation of that and as I become more involved in contributing to conservation (albeit in a very small way), more and more animals are being added to the range. Watch this space!
I am happiest playing with textures, colour and combinations and the resulting jewellery is featured on this website for you to look at and enjoy.
