At the age of 53, Sue Corbin left her life as a successful business executive and leader in two industries to raise a newborn granddaughter. The transition from non-stop meetings and travel to a sedentary life was a bit challenging so Sue decided to take jewelry making classes. By the second class, she felt that she knew more than her teacher and walked away to develop her own style.
Sue always loved and purchased one-of-a-kind artwork throughout her life, so she had an affinity for the unique. Unbeknownst to her, the talent she observed and acquired from her gifted, prodigy mother came to the surface as she created jewelry for herself. When strangers approached her and complimented her jewelry, she realized she had a gift.
Although Sue is eclectic in many ways in her designs she favors symmetry. She creates simple designs as well as unique pieces using natural gemstones that inspire her. She only designs jewelry that she loves and fortunately for her, many others love her designs.
Her background in sales and marketing led her to walk into a gallery in 2007 to see if her creations had merit and her career as a professional jewelry designer began. She was the permanent artist in several galleries in Ohio for the past 9 years and interestingly enough, she is back in the gallery that first accepted her jewelry in 2009, Hayley Gallery.
