The contemporary jewelry designer, Suzanne Syz is renowned for her highly original and unconventional designs which draw on myna sources for inspiration. Born in Zurich and educated in Paris, she moved to New York City in the 1980s and became part of the circle of Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, Francersco Clemente and Jeff Koons. The nearness of these revolutionary creative spirits and their work not only greatly impacted her contemporary art collection; it also proved to be a formidable catalyst for her jewelry creations. Radiant colours, audacious compositions and unusual materials have become trademarks of Suzanne Syz’s work.
