Little Dippers & Dragon Tails

The night sky is nature's ever-changing light show. Sue Beatrice's necklace celebrates sparkly, stellar wonder with a section of the Northern hemisphere sky. With bright Polaris (the North Star) at its center, her textured swath includes storied constellations: Ursa Minor (The Little Bear or Little Dipper), Ursa Major (The Big Dipper), and a portion of Draco (The Dragon). Suspended from an 18-inch silver chain (because gravity), her tribute to celestial beauty makes a enchanting gift for any stylish stargazer. 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!
