Quintessential Design Studio

Portfolio - a lifetime of creation

Susie Leuck, born and raised in Santa Cruz, has been hand crafting lampshades, jewelry and other design projects for many years.

Through her meaningful use of crystal gems, re-purposed sea glass and polished stone, Susie creates original jewelry which provides a platform of rebirth, strength and new purpose.

With an intentional passion for designing inspirational pieces, Susie is able to bring out the Quintessential beauty of each element.

Lamps are not included in the price of the shade; however, if interested, I am certain we can negotiate a fair price.

Shipping available for additional cost.
