Suzanne Syz: Art Jewels
Born in Zurich and educated in Paris, jewelry designer Suzanne Syz moved to New York City in the 1980s where she encountered legendary artists Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, Francesco Clemente, and Jeff Koons.
Frustrated that she couldn’t find the jewelry she wanted, Syz began crafting her own pieces in the mid-1990s. Today, the Geneva-based designer boasts a client list including the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Glora von Thurn und Taxis, the Archduchess Francesca von Habsburg-Thyssen, Michelle Yeoh. Syz’s audacious compositions, use of unconventional materials, and choice of bold colors breathe individuality into all of her pieces.
This beautifully illustrated book explores everything from Syz’s love for art, her family, and her inspirations, this title also features an interviewstyle text by art critic Nicolas Trembley that delves into the visionary jewelry designer’s inner workings. With original photography, personal photos, and imagery of some of her most magnificent pieces, Suzanne Syz: Art Jewels is a delight for jewelry lovers, art aficionados, and creatives everywhere.
