Sue Rosengard

Hand made jewelry from Chicago 

Sue Rosengard founded her company in 1986 in New York City after receiving a BA in French from the University of Illinois, with a year of study in Paris and Italy. Her jewelry education is primarily self-taught, although she suspects her inspiration partly comes from growing up in Chicago among the skyscrapers and Frank Lloyd Wright influenced buildings. The designers of the Modernist era have also been significant influences on Sue- particularly jewelers Margaret de Patta and Paul Lobel, sculptor Alexander Calder, and Russel Wright.
