Susan Elnora

"When we begin to pay attention, the illusion of separation begins to dissolve. I am drawn to imagery that reflects a connection to spirit, awareness, curiosity, and playfulness. My jewelry, while often stirring unique individual associations, also tends to point to our essential connectedness and a certain shared experience of the world."

Susan Elnora's work explores the idea that jewelry can fulfill roles beyond that of adornment: it also acts as a visual and tactile manifestation of memories, dreams, and intentions. Because of the personal nature of the relationship between jewelry and its wearer, jewelry can become a powerful symbol of personal mythos, as well as a reminder to cultivate presence and openness.

All pieces are initially hand-fabricated by Susan Elnora from sterling silver or gold. Most shapes are sawed out, then refined with files, and pieces are forged, assembled, and soldered together. She often textures and oxidizes her work to bring out its delicate details and sculptural dimensionality. A supporter of conscious sustainability, Elnora uses recycled metals and responsibly sourced gems.

Susan Elnora was introduced to metalsmithing as an undergrad in Studio Art at Carleton College. She later attended Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts, after which she was employed for several years as a goldsmith by Master Goldsmith Stephen Vincent. When she set out on her own, Elnora landed in New Mexico for a spell, which continues to influence her work.
