SUDIFY jewelry celebrates the beauty of the natural world. Owner Susan Storck collects lichens, moss, leaves and ferns from Minnesota’s woods and preserves them in resin to showcase their wonderful form and features. Susan, who studied horticulture at the University of Minnesota and learned professional plant preservation techniques working at the University’s herbarium, brings her handmade necklaces, earrings, pendants and rings to the Mill City Farmers Market.
“I used to call myself a MN maker inspired by nature, but really I’m just a plant freak who also is an artist. I hope that by framing, let’s say, a lichen in a pendant it showcases its beauty just like a gemstone. I hope my jewelry inspires people to appreciate even the smallest pieces of beauty in nature. It is a gentle reminder to be a good steward of the land.”-Susan Storck
In addition to hiking, foraging and making jewelry, Susan works at an educational farm 30 miles west of Minneapolis.
