Holidays are a little more festive when local artists are involved! Red i Jewelry's talented jeweler, Susan Scaparotti, is bringing in her newest creations on Wednesday, December 20th from 1-7pm and regular operating hours through Saturday the 23rd. We've featured her jewelry in our shop before, but she continues to amaze us with completely unique and one-of-a-kind pieces! Much of her work revolves around salvaging vintage or antique components and re-envisioning them in a contemporary fashion.
Susan Scaparotti has been a full-time jeweler for over 15 years and took after her father, Enrico, who also practiced the fine jewelry craft throughout his 93 years of life. Like her father, her studio was set up in her basement as her own little sanctuary. Her jewelry making practice is not only a means of channeling her creativity and passion, but also tradition as she utilizes the tools her father left to her. When she creates something, it has more to do with the materials and objects she falls in love with rather than a specific concept or idea. Every necklace, bracelet, or pair of earrings is a work of art!
