Two years ago, Samantha Sussman left her career in International Relations behind her to explore the world that she had been working to mend. After finally deciding to unpack and stay a while in her Denver, Colorado, home, she found herself overtaken by the beauty that surrounded her throughout her travels. The product of her inspiration: Sam & Goldie Jewelry, a line that blends together the quality and classic style of honored heirlooms with the whimsy of fashions found around the globe.
Clusters of amethyst and citrine, large groupings of pearls, and brilliant druzy pendants finished with sterling silver or gold chains and bows are staples for the line. Sam & Goldie is an agreeable contradiction of raw materials with polished and cultured elements.
Balancing her global interests with her passion for art and design is no easy feat. Samantha was awakened by her foreign surroundings and because she prides herself on being globally aware, she is committed to hand crafting beautiful and wearable pieces from only the highest quality, consciously salvaged semiprecious stones, minerals, and metals. Goldie, Samantha's great-grandmother, was her very first fashion icon and her inspiration behind the classic elements associated with the Sam & Goldie collections. The Sam & Goldie name pays homage to uniting generations of women but also, to the eras of fashion from which they emerge.
