The Who: Susan Kurtz of Susie Kays Keepsake Bouquets and Jewelry
The Details: One-of-a-kind bouquets, bridal accessories, and jewelry, created using your own sentimental keepsakes, or pieces from my vast collection of pretties!
My love of sparkly items began at a very young age in my Grandmother's attic. She had a lovely collection of rhinestones and would let me try them all on. This led me to my career as a Jeweler Gemologist, and a very nice run in the diamond industry. As I had children, I still had a love for all things sparkly, but I focused my life on raising a family. I opened my Etsy shop in 2011, and have had an emphasis on the bridal industry primarily for the last four years. I love working with brides, and including their family heirlooms in my unique designs. My designs are all one-of-a-kind and tailored to suit the bride's theme and personality. It gives me great pleasure knowing that one of my creations will be treasured long after the wedding day, and passed on for generations.
