Sue's Profile

About

My name is Sue, and I have always been drawn to beautiful things. I have lived in Southern California for most of my life. At an early age my parents traveled and lived in many places around the world. Even though I was very young I remember the colors and textures of things around me.

I love jewelry, all types. I have always been fascinated by it. I love admiring it, wearing it and most of all designing and creating it. That is where BackstreetCreations comes into my life. It gives me great pleasure to make jewelry that gives pleasure to others. I especially love Lockets. To me they are a wonderful way to keep the ones you love close to your heart whether they are with us or have passed on. Currently I am interested in recreating Classical Vintage inspired jewelry with a touch of nature and whimsy. It is just another extension of things I love to do. I am a quilter who loves hand applique and I have always been into creating beautiful things. I am also an artist who used to paint murals and enjoyed painting many different things also interior decorating was another one of my many interests.

I am married to the "love of my life" and the mother of three wonderful boys, have two terrific daughters-in-law and three beautiful granddaughters and three handsome grandsons, I guess you could say my life is very full and blessed.
