An Art of Her Own...

Susan Peterson, the owner of Tawanda Jewelry, has been designing and manufacturing jewelry using gold, silver, and gemstones for over thirty years.  Her southwestern flair comes from her early work designing turquoise jewelry in Arizona.  Self-taught, she has continued to develop her artistry, including studying jewelry repair and diamond setting at Stewart's International School for Jewelers. 

Susan finds inspiration for her original designs in her love for precious and semiprecious stones, discovering unique ways to highlight the stones in pendants, rings, bracelets, and earrings.  She has been awarded prizes for three-dimentional design in Florida, New Hampshire, and Maine. 

A dynamic, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable teacher, Susan offers personally focused lessons for groups and individuals. 

Please take your time and enjoy looking through these beautiful, individually crafted pieces.  Feel free to email or call Susan to ask questions about the materials and the designs.  If you have an idea for a custom-made piece, don't hesitate to ask!
