Renate Surh blends traditional and contemporary methods to create her hand-fabricated jewelry. The physicality of creating combined with the unique qualities of her source materials are her inspiration. Renate’s design and composition are influenced by her passion for travel, art, and culture. Her academic background in fine art, philosophy, and science have led her to live and work in Indonesia, Taiwan, China and throughout the U.S. including California, Wyoming, Illinois, Texas, Alaska and now her home in Albuquerque. Renate marries raw metals to unusual minerals and unique materials to ensure each piece she crafts is one of a kind.
