ABOUT SUSIE ASPELL DESIGNS
About 20 years ago a friend showed me how to make a wrapped loop and I was hooked.
African Trade beads, turquoise, jasper, agate, aventurine, cinnabar, carnelian, onyx, lava, obsidian, magnesite, howlite, amber, opal, pearls, carved bone & horn, resin, shells, bamboo coral, prehnite, nuts, old buttons, and sparkly beads grabbed my fancy. Upcycled and repurposed items also became favorites, as I incorporated them into new lives as necklaces from belts & brooches, remade old clip earrings, and reimagined bracelets from "found" items.
After retiring from a nursing career and second career in a law office, I have found my passion and an outlet for my creativity.
