My name is Abdur Suade , I AM a self taught Jewelry Designer from the State of New Jersey by way of Barbados... Ive worn many hats over the years. In 2005 as a professional fashion designer, I won Designer of the Year. 2010 as an aspiring Baker/Chef in the city of Brooklyn, NY I started entertaining the idea of making Jewelry. April of 2010 I had a what I would call a crystal experience or some sort of an awakening. After the Awakening I started dabbling with crystals ie; wrapping them with silver wire and non-tarnish silver wire... Then by the end of 2012 I picked up this Copper and it's been Flame-on ever since.
