From Q Evon Jewelry Design – it’s ALL a Treasure!
‘The Treasure Collection is recycled and reclaimed metal at its best. This collection is currently our most successful line.’ And these are the words of their creator – Suzanne Q. Evon.
These beautiful freeform shapes came about when Suzanne realized that beautiful use could be made of what appeared to be scrap pieces of metal. She gave them texture and created freeform shapes which form link necklaces, pendants, and earrings, in different combinations of metal colors and sizes.
