This delicate necklace echoes the shape of a tumbleweed in minimalist expression. The sterling loops form an airy ball that embellishes the wearer's neck without feeling heavy.

Sue Rosengard founded her company in 1986 in New York City after receiving a BA in French from the University of Illinois, with a year of study in Paris and Italy. Her jewelry education is primarily self-taught, although she suspects her inspiration partly comes from growing up in Chicago among the skyscrapers and Frank Lloyd Wright influenced buildings. The designers of the Modernist era have also been significant influences on Sue- particularly jewelers Margaret de Patta and Paul Lobel, sculptor Alexander Calder, and Russel Wright.

Sue's goal is to create affordable, well-crafted and well-designed jewelry that appeals to all ages. The contemporary geometric shapes are designed to flatter the face of the wearer while being lightweight, easy to wear, and timeless.
