Meet the Maker #3

Maker number 3 is the fabulous Suzy Schwenk! As well as making beautiful jewellery and being one of our first artists to get involved, Suzy has been CH+’s number one volunteer since the beginning. She’s volunteered at all our sales and most of our F-Art club groups (including earlier in the morning than anyone would want!).

Thank you so much Suzy <3

How are you finding the winter so far?

It’s a bit cold and dark but a good excuse to do lots of knitting.

What’s your favourite material to work with?

At the moment I’ve mostly been working with beads and stones but I love doing anything crafty where I can work with my hands.

When did you start making things and how long have you been making things for? I’ve always loved making things but have only started making jewellery (which is currently my main focus) in the last few months.

What’s your favourite piece you’ve ever made?

I made a panda on a stick once that I was very proud of.

Any new years resolutions?

To be more tolerant and spend less time in my pyjamas.

Any advice to other local creatives?

You don’t have to be amazingly talented to be creative and enjoy making things.
