Olivia Marie Suffern is equal parts artist, designer, and craftswoman. Fascinated by all things miniature since she was miniature herself, she spent her childhood collecting figurines and building "fairy homes" out of pebbles, petals, and twigs. Her predilection for intricacy logically progressed into a passion for the process and scale of jewelry making and she received her B.F.A. in metalsmithing from Pratt Institute in 2014.
Awash in ambition to pursue her calling, Olivia relocated to her native city of Cincinnati, OH to set up her studio (in her garage, in fact). Making the most of her humble atelier, she launched her line and began exhibiting in boutiques and gallery shows. Olivia's technical prowess blossomed under the guidance of renowned instructor Blaine Lewis at New Approach School for Jewelers in Franklin, TN. She currently resides in New York City once again, and works out of her studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
True to its appellation, Olivia Marie Handcrafted Adornment is created by hand, imbuing each piece with spirit and novelty. Olivia's studio practice incorporates an arsenal of techniques including casting, forging, soldering and fabrication; polishing, enameling, stone setting and more. Each new design spurs an exciting technical challenge, and Olivia spends countless hours in her workshop transforming her ideas into tangible, wearable works of art.
