About Graff Designs

Welcome to S Graff Designs - Where Beads and Gemstones Shine Bright

Sue Graff embarked on a journey of handcrafted artisan bead and gemstone jewelry. It all began with the magic of a single bead – a bead that ignited a passion, transforming a mere hobby in 2004 into a business by 2008.

It Started with a Bead…

Sometimes, inspiration strikes with just one bead. It could be the captivating color, intricate pattern, unique shape, or a hint of sparkle that sets the imagination in motion. For me, that single bead was the catalyst that led to a beautiful journey. I was initially drawn to bead embroidery, but the small seed beads presented a challenge. Fortunately, destiny intervened when I discovered that a couple of my co-workers were creating stunning jewelry. I delved into magazines, exploring the world of jewelry-making, and I was hooked. The thrill of designing jewelry was further enhanced when I was invited to join their bi-annual home trunk shows, where creativity knew no bounds.

"Sue's Daughter and Granddaughter"

My journey into jewelry-making evolved into a business, all while I continued my full-time job – a juggling act between creativity and the corporate world. Creating jewelry served as a perfect counterbalance to the daily numbers and spreadsheets. Colorado, with its breathtaking natural beauty, became my muse.
