Forge and Foundry
Susan Mancuso is the creative force behind Forge & Foundry.
Her work is created by various techniques: carving and shaping wax pieces, which are then cast into precious metals. Others are made by scoring and coaxing metal using chasing and repousse techniques. These jewelry-making techniques have been used for thousands of years across the spectrum of human civilization.
Susan's goal is to make beautifully-designed, finely-crafted jewelry with high-quality, ethically-sourced materials. She hopes that wearers of her work get the same sense that she experiences when creating her work: the sense of commonality in humanity, past and present, in the act of making and wearing beautiful pieces to adorn our bodies using the materials from Mother Earth, that all of us walk on.
Stay tuned, jewels to come.
