Super-Sized Sentiment

There's tender animal kingdom inspiration behind Sue Beatrice's necklace. Elephants use their trunks like hands to grasp and carry objects from twigs to trees (not to mention using them to breathe, smell, and drink). But here's the sweet part: They also caress each other with their trunks to comfort and, during courtship, entwine their trunks together. Sue's sterling silver tribute to this gentle gesture goes a step further, forming a heart from a pair of loving pachyderms. Suspended from an 18-inch chain, it makes an endearing statement for someone you love. Handmade in Sea Cliff, New York.

“Every day that I get to live this life and create art is a victory worth celebrating.”

Sure, nature inspires Sue Beatrice’s designs, but it’s man-made creations that really turn her gears. The artist, who has worked for everyone from The Franklin Mint to Disney over three decades, seeks to explore what she calls “the spiritual connection between time and mortality” when creating wearable sculptures from former watch parts. (“I never destroy a watch that works!” she shares.) As she creates new heirlooms from old, 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 custom pieces designed just for them,” she says. “It's an amazing feeling to know your art has touched someone's heart like that.”

Take a Studio Tour to see where Sue creates her tiny, wearable sculptures!

    Comments about UncommonGoods Love Nose Necklace:

    I received this necklace as an anniversary present, and I love it! It's beautiful, unique and very carefully crafted. You can clearly make out the features of the two elephants – their pose and smiles. I wear it every day and receive many compliments. I highly recommend this piece, especially if you're looking for something to give to a significant other.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Love Nose Necklace:

    Not as three-dimensional looking upon arrival, if you can believe that. The light and dark features shown in the photo are in the actual piece, but not with the contrast shown in the photo. I had to look really close at it to see the detail in the eyes and the separation between the heads is actually hilighted, instead of dark, as seen in the photo.
