Sue Horine has been creating her bead embroidered art jewelry since 2005. Primarily self-taught, her beaded jewelry is becoming easily recognizable as her style has developed from her love of nature and the scenic stone cabochons she incorporates in her work. Sue was born in California and much of her inspiration comes from her childhood family vacations to the southwest and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. After inheriting her grandparent’s collection of cut and polished cabochons from their rock hounding years, Sue found her own way to bring out the beauty of the stones. Her appreciation of the traditional Native American flat beadwork is apparent in Sue’s work. Recently Sue has developed an interest in the old west, ranches and cowgirls. She has started incorporating some western flavor to her work.
