In an unexpected twist, Susan started making jewelry over two decades ago while working in aeronautical electronics. After launching her popular Greenport jewelry shop ‘Blue Ruth’ in 2008, she developed a style inspired by storytelling, ritual, & historical adornments. Her infatuation with color & symbolism is evident in every piece that she makes.
When she’s not creating jewelry, you can find her tending to her pet snail, weaving textiles, or watching Tarantino movies.
Alexa was born & raised in Greenport and moved to the jewelry industry after embracing a lifelong obsession with making things. She is certified by the Gemological Institute of America & her style mixes new CAD technology with ancient goldsmithing techniques.
When she’s not at her jeweler’s bench, you can find her rock climbing, fiddling with her rare plant collection, or cooking up a far-too-complicated recipe.
