Susan Miller, founder of SKM Artworks, designs handmade jewelry inspired by a deep connection to nature, fascination with multi-cultural influences, and an appreciation for simple, natural, yet lovely adornment. Using the techniques Susan created to merge the craft of crochet with the art of jewelry making, SKM artworks' trademark weaving of precious metals and gemstones within natural leathers and Irish waxed linen tap into a desire for meaningful jewelry with an organic feel... rustic and spiritual with a luxury twist.
Founded in 2010 with the mission to create gorgeous wearable art with a focus on social contribution, SKM's jewelry strives to convey individual style while making women feel as good as they look (see our Causes page for more on what makes us tick).
Each piece is lovingly handcrafted by Susan and her team of talented local artisans in SKM's New Jersey studio using only the finest natural materials including sterling silver, 24k gold vermeil, bronze, a wide array of precious and semi-precious gemstones, cultured pearls, natural certified-green leathers and Irish waxed linen. Aside from gorgeous gemstones, SKM artworks incorporates original pendants, found treasures, interesting antiques and artifacts. The resulting jewelry possesses an earthy organic quality that feels as if it was grown rather than made. These meaningful yet versatile creations can be worn in multiple ways; single or layered, long or doubled, dressed up or down.
Amidst the joyful chaos of life as an artisan, loving wife, mother to three wonderfully active boys, and adoptive mom to two rescue dogs and a parakeet, it's lucky for us that Susan was able to combine her love of gems, textile making and nature into the creation of SKM artworks.
Let the art work for you...
