Meet Geneva-based contemporary jewelry designer Suzanne Syz and her unconventional, original designs.
Suzanne cites Andy Warhol, Francesco Clemente, Julian Schnabel, Jean Michel Basquiat and Jeff Koons – all of whom she was friends with when she lived in New York City in the 1980s – as influences on her art-inspired creations. She loves using unusual materials and radiant colours.
Her “Live Savers”, inspired by the famous American candy, belong to Suzanne’s iconic designs.
Isn’t that “Smarties” necklace (around CHF 100.000) absolutely divine?!
When I met her, she said: “Jewelry should be individual and reflect your personal style.” She takes this vision seriously. All her designs are highly individual one-of-a-kind pieces and there is no way that she will reproduce the exact same one.
Suzanne Syz is exclusively available at Landolf & Huber in Zurich, Switzerland – a jeweler that I can highly recommend.
