Susan Ruppel, a native Californian, has no formal training in design. Her love of design was inherited from her artistic mother.
Always a treasure seeker and trinket collector, her passion for jewelry design was born after fashioning a pin for a friend from flea market finds of vintage Cracker Jack prizes, beads and buttons.
Susan’s work has been represented at galleries in Beverly Hills, Laguna Beach, Philadelphia and New York.
When not in her studio creating jewelry, you might find her tending to her backyard flower garden, perusing travel books or playing with her two Bearded Collies.
