Suse Scholem graduated from Monash University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Fine Art and Honours in Fine Art. Based in Melbourne, Suse is particularly passionate about the social potential of contemporary jewellery, whilst prioritising sustainable practice.
The use of recycled metals and found objects feature significantly in Scholem’s work. Experimenting with unusual natural materials in her production work, Suse creates one-off pieces, guided in design by the organic components she fervently collects.
Her range for Lord Coconut employs alchemical processes, such as electro-forming and direct casting, combined with old worlde aesthetics and a sensitive appreciation of bodily materials. Each piece is uniquely hand made by the artist.
