Discover Suzanne Syz
Internationally acclaimed jewellery art designer Suzanne Syz doesn't produce just any run-of-the-mill pieces. No, these are fabulous creations worthy of the title of art. Her recent book Suzanne Syz: Art Jewels, published by Assouline, is a visually-charged A to Z compilation of the designer’s career touching on her lifelong fascination with glamour and her desire to create happy pieces which don’t take themselves too seriously. The stunning tome is filled with bejewelled neckwear, statement earrings and iceberg-sized rings which give even the glitziest chandeliers a run for their money. And we mean that literally. Her chandelier-like drop earrings which are not an uncommon item of the repertoire – are absolutely characteristic of the glamour with which Suzanne imbues her work. Elizabeth Taylor was a fan – need we say more? A Swiss by birth, educated in Paris and a New Yorker by the 1980s – where she was part of an illustrious circle, having rubbed shoulders with Jean Michel Basquiat, Jeff Koons and even found herself on the other side of Andy Warhol’s canvas – the designer is noticeably passionate about her craft. Achieving somewhat of a jewellery trifecta, Suzanne’s collection draws on natural, pop and contemporary influences. Whether it’s a crab brooch encrusted with 509 demantoids, candy-like rings or barbed wire earrings crafted from titanium and white gold, the designer makes a statement and admirably does it with a slight giggle.
Her friendships with some of the leading names of the 1980s contemporary art scene continues to inspire the designer even now as she claims her LuxHave of all time “would be a Wade Guyton picture – the X series – on my wall.”
I had been looking all over for whimsical luxury jewellery but couldn’t find what I wanted so I started to design my own pieces.
Her self-proclaimed favourite project, Suzanne has restored her Tuscan home to its former glory – striped exterior and all – and complements the traditional with an eclectic interior of contemporary art, mid-century furniture and Tibetan rugs.
