Suzan Hidding


Suzan likes to collect things from the natural world. Her drawers are filled with experiments in technique, surface, form and color. Parts that she once made from metal, from wood or bone, enameled bits, shapes that she cuts out of paper, images from flowers or leafs and finds from nature. She give them a space where they can get to know each other. She arranges and rearranges them, and if they like each other, they form the basis for a new design, an interpretation of the botanical world, a new species plant or flower.

She loves to explore new materials and techniques from diverse disciplines, always looking for new ways to bring color into the jewelry. Combining traditional materials like gold, silver and enamel, with industrial paint, wood and steel. Always aiming for jewelry that is strong and subtle, beautifully crafted and a pleasure to live with.
