Susan Nieland has been designing one-of-a-kind necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings for over two decades. Susan's first collection of fine jewelry in 18K gold found wide acclaim thoughout the 1990s. Lauded for its delicate craftsmanship and organic beauty, the collection was featured exclusively at Barneys New York for many years.
Today's collection is a reflection of the beautiful beaches, light and open sky by which Susan and her family are surrounded on Long Island's east end. After relocating to East Hampton in 1998, she began to collect beach stones found along the coastal shores of the Long Island Sound, the Atlantic and the myriad bay beaches, inlets and reefs of the Southfork. Each stone provides a unique meditation on the geological forces that formed this special place.
Susan's handmade charms are derived from a lifetime of observing cultural and literary elements in Egyptian, Greek and Roman history. Filtered through her poetic eye, this wonderful collection of symbols, shapes and artifacts truly comes from the heart.
Susan Nieland's East Hampton studio is open by appointment throughout the year.
