Susan Prior Fields

Members Showcase Gallery 8.9 - 9.23.17


Susan Prior Fields is a self-taught “beader” with over 30 years of experience. She says to create her beaded flower and tree sculptures and floral inspired jewelry she employs “repetition, pattern, precise technique, color, sheen and translucency all inspired by nature and thousands of tiny seed beads.” Susan’s flowers are done in the “French method” using wire and beads. They appear fragile but are very strong and permanent. Her trees are very labor intense and most take up to 3 months to complete and her jewelry consists of a variety of different beads and stitches. Each piece is crafted one at a time and on average take one to two full days to complete.
