Hello, my name is Susanne Lorraine. My studio is Art West Bead, Print and Jewelry. I came up with the name Art West because I am an artist originally from San Diego. I have been making jewelry most of my life. My grandmother saw that I had an interest in beading when I was in the second grade, so she decided to teach me how to string beads. Ever since then I have loved beading and designing jewelry.I believe that San Diego and my travels have inspired my love of color and shape. Each bead in every piece is needed for the design and it adds its own piece to the puzzle. Some patterns have taken me two years to complete because I have waited for the perfect bead to come along to finish the pattern. In every piece of jewelry that I design I strive for high quality. I hope that everyone who buys a piece of my jewelry enjoys the movement of color and shape of the piece as I do.
