Susi Hines is a full time jewellery and designer. She strongly believes in the making process.
Susi trained at Middlesex University and was then apprenticed at Collingwoods Goldsmiths in Conduit Street, London W1 (by Royal appointment), and later set her own studio with a Crafts Council grant.
She is strongly influenced by ways of interpreting the universe particularly from the Renaissance e.g. heavenly maps, models, celestial globes. Spheres are a recurring theme – a form which is both complete and resolved and universally satisfying.
Susi has taught in London colleges and continues to be a full time jeweller. She believes passionately in the teaching of crafts in this country and its fine tradition.
