Suzanna McMahan's Profile

About

I am the daughter of a Yankee and a southern belle who met on a blind date in Dallas, Texas. While one side of the family taught me the appreciation of hard work, the other side taught me how to have good taste in design.

Having been taught to recycle since I was 5 and to shop antique stores for the best furniture since I was 15, these lessons came to the forefront of my mind when hurricane Katrina hit in 2005 and I had to create a job for myself when I couldn't go back to the Gulf Coast. Ever since then, I've been dedicating my life to stop broken costume jewelry and "old things" from going into the landfill so they can find new life and give meaning to those who love my work.
