“Every day that I get to live this life and create art is a victory worth celebrating.”
Nature inspires Sue Beatrice's designs, but it's man-made creations that really turn her gears. When she creates new heirlooms from old ("I never destroy a watch that works!," she shares), she finds herself "thinking about the lives of the people who once owned the timepieces," a process that helped her evaluate her life goals. Her products hold power over others, too: "Several people have burst into happy tears when seeing pieces designed just for them. It's an amazing feeling to know your art has touched someone's heart."
