Susanne Ekdahl is a Swedish designer who has been living in the Isle of Man for the last 11 years. After moving abroad and becoming a mother of 2 she gave up her business in financial services. While attending a beading class she got hooked straight away.
She signed up for further beading classes at college which instead turned out to be silver jewellery making which got her into a new area. She loves experimenting with different materials and learning new techniques and now makes jewellery from beads, silver, silver clay, and leather.
Predominantly self taught, she also attends courses at the college and frequently attends workshops in Sweden to improve her skills. Silver and leather are her current favourites.
