Suzanne Crudden is an accomplished designer and goldsmith in Toronto specializing in custom jewellery, wedding & engagement rings and reusing old jewellery.
She is also one of the founders and co-owners of flux + form, voted one of the best jewellery stores in Toronto by Blog TO. Suzanne received a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art and Anthropology from the University of Toronto before training as a goldsmith at George Brown College.
Born in Brantford, Ontario, Suzanne enjoyed artistic pursuits from the very beginning. Her creativity was encouraged and she spent hours sketching or designing clothes for her Princess Diana paper doll.
Suzanne knew from an early age that she either wanted to be a designer or ‘Indiana Jones’. When it came time to make post-secondary school decisions she decided to pursue both fine art and anthropology at the University of Toronto where she earned her bachelor’s degree four years later.
After graduation Suzanne spent some valuable and interesting time in the hospitality industry. Soon, however, it was time to make a change and in 2004 she enrolled in the George Brown Jewellery Program.
Within a year after graduation Suzanne opened up her own jewellery studio with fellow goldsmith and best friend Kim Drosdick. A few years later she returned to teach at George Brown as a part-time Jewellery Faculty member.
In the years since flux + form has become Toronto’s destination for custom jewellery and known for our simplified, inclusive and affordable approach. Voted one of the best jewellery stores and places to get an engagement ring by Blog TO, the studio continues to grow. Recently flux + form welcomed a third owner, colleague and friend, Carey Pearson.
As an established designer Suzanne is continuing to enjoy building relationships with her clients and working along-side her colleagues and friends. She specializes in custom jewellery and re-using old jewellery while also designing her own collections.
