It was one of those stressful days at work where jewelry orders were delayed, the construction work over my home studio sounded like they were coming through the ceiling (again), I had worked too many consecutive days (ok, weeks) without a day off and I may have sent an email to an already unhappy client with SO SORRY FOR YOUR INCONTINENCE (thank you spellcheck!). By 1 pm, my co-worker could see an intervention was needed before I clawed through the walls back to sanity. She suggested I take a break. I was thinking I wanted to sit down and a...
This season, the Neo-Victorian trend is showcased in the collections of fashion’s most renowned couture houses. From Valentino to Givenchy, the classics of the Victorian aesthetic are everywhere. Think lace, ruffled blouses, high-necked collars, and lots of black — were juxtaposed with modern sensibilities such as high boots, peek-a-boo slips and jackets and spectacular jewels, naturally. We’ve spotted many designs, that are inspired by this influential era and we have designed our own twist on this trend with our Jessica personalized shield. This Suetables original is a nod to history, medieval times and royalty when shields were used a shield...
Last year, we purchased a beautiful Richard Johnson photograph of a Canadian red ice hut for our home. The artist explained that each photo was a limited edition, for example: 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 etc. It was a big selling point for me, knowing I would not see my painting everywhere.

Big is better, no? Well, I have a secret for you: all our original designs have small runs....
A broken heart It's a cloudy, heavy, damp Maine day. I took an afternoon walk to watch my son and friends surf the waves at the beach. Walking home in flip flops, I stopped and sat on the sea wall. I looked out at the cloudy sky and grey ocean. I listened to the rocks tumble back and forth in unison as the waves lulled them in and out with the rocking surf. It is such a beautiful sound. My late father is not here to enjoy this, I thought to myself. And he hasn't been here for over 20...
A baker’s dozen Against all odds, 13 has always been my lucky number. As a child, you are always asked your favorite color and number. I chose sky blue and 13. Did you know buildings often do not have a 13th floor? Owners have trouble renting on the 13th floor as residents are afraid they are inviting bad luck if they live there. Liking the much-dreaded number 13, is all part of other qualities I have: I often root for the underdog, I love odd numbers in design and I am drawn to the quirky odd-ball in the room. I...
