Jewellery designer Suzanne Syz talks about being a self-taught designer, her penchant for rare metals and gemstones, her love affair with colours and pop art and more importantly, not conforming to the rulebook of fashion. By Vijetha Rangabashyam

There is something extremely whimsical about Suzanne Syz’s jewellery. Like most successful jewellery designers who don’t like to conform themselves to trends, Syz’s jewellery is an outcome of her unadulterated imagination, pieces that you’ve never seen before or will never see again. One look at her pieces and you come to know that she is a lover of colours – they are kaleidoscopic, bursting with fun and a sense of flirtatiousness. ‘My jewellery is fun, whimsical and for people who don’t take them self too seriously,’ she says with a little laugh.

When you think of luxury, you think of classics – diamonds, platinum, gold all muddled together in elegant designs. But Syz takes the definition of luxury to a whole new level. There’s a generous use of aluminium and titanium in her jewellery. ‘I love aluminium and titanium as I can colour them in many shades and make fun pieces. I also love to work with bronze.

The idea that the piece will change in time with oxidation is very exciting. It brings more life to the piece.’ Even when it comes to gemstones, Syz uses diamonds as a mere accessory; the star of a piece remains to be offbeat, peculiar gemstones. ‘I’ve always been attracted to unconventional stones and metals. I don’t go for the “everyone” stone. I like spinels very much, Paraiba tourmaline and sometimes fall in love with a diamond but rarely. It must be the perfect one!’
