These earrings are really stunning, great color and texture, just the right amount of silver and black (plus the holes and asymmetry look very cool). They're very lightweight and comfortable too!

These earrings are even more beautiful than anticipated! Great quality and craftsmanship, Susan is a super sweet person to work with and I couldn't be happier with my new earrings. I definitely recommend her creations! Perfect transaction.

About

A multigenerational story of The Wachler Family Jewelry passion.

I was born into a family of jewelry artisans who initially trained in Eastern Europe. After immigrating to America in the early 1900s, my paternal grandfather, and his brother launched their careers as fine jewelers in Detroit,
Michigan. They were successful jewelry makers and sellers and their vision led to what is today a business in its fourth generation.

Since my early childhood, my family of gemologists and jewelry artists have fascinated me. I have deeply cherished memories of visits with my grandfather to his studio and store in Downtown Detroit, busily rolling metals through the rolling mills and memorizing the names of various gemstones with the pride of learning a new alphabet.

During frequent weekend visits and stays with my grandparents, I repeatedly engaged in the ritual of emptying out little velvet lined bags onto my grandma Margie's bed which contained her jewelry treasures. I was mesmerized by their physical beauty, but I was totally entranced by the stories and events symbolized by the gifts of these shiny objects.

After working as a psychotherapist for 33 years, I am a breathing archive of sacred stories. Six years ago, I started making jewelry. The pieces I create, are the artistic and symbolic expressions of the stories I hold.

I strive to bring jewelry your way which can be used to symbolize and memorialize strength, courage, inspiration, sacred life events, and hope.

My work is all hand fabricated from recycled and/or ethically sourced materials. I would be honored to help you repurpose a piece which you hold precious, using your own materials or by assisting you in the custom creation of an original.

Thank you for coming to Metal Dance Jewelry and thank you for your interest in sharing this work.

With Gratitude ,
Susan

    I am a collector of stories. The tales I am told – the visions, dreams and representations that people entrust in me—go into the jewelry I make. Each new piece is a delight to create, unique in its beauty and adds to my vast archive of memories.
