About me

Industry Arts
Occupation designer
Location Cleveland, Ohio, United States
Introduction I have been making art as long as I can remember. (Arts & Crafts camp? Art classes at the museum? Sign me up!) My art passion led me to art school (Go Blue!) where I followed the path of commercial graphic arts. This in turn, led me to illustrating greeting cards for a huge corporation for many years and eventually running a graphic design/illustration business from my home studio while I raised my twins. If you are an art person you know that working with your hands is an addiction you cannot shed. So, I am back to my passion of making jewelry. I have also always been a beach girl, collecting sea glass, shells and beach stones from every beach I visit in my travels. When I discovered I could actually combine my two loves: making creative and fun stuff (I have also sewn clothing, wood burned, painted furniture, dyed silk scarves...oh, the list is endless) with hanging out on beautiful beaches collecting natural treasures, I knew I’d found my dream! So, here is SToNZ. I only have 2 wrists and one neck, and way more stuff than I can wear myself, so it’s time to share. Susan Saltzman
