From the Author Suzanne McNeill:

Suzanne McNeill loves everything hands-on. For over 25 years she has been the creative force behind Design Originals. She is always coming up with inspiring innovations, inviting projects and fresh ideas.

When asked where she gets her inspiration and endless supply of energy, she smiles and says, "I love designing! Opening my mind to all the beautiful things around me inspires my creativity. This is especially true when I learn something new. That why I love taking classes, traveling, meeting new people and experiencing new things.

Whether it's painting, beading, sewing, quilting, or crafting, Suzanne does it wonderfully

Many thanks to Donna Perotta for skillfully braiding the beautiful necklaces.
