Press Release: Pensacola jeweler, Susan Campbell, bedecks world famous models in yearly swimsuit tour de force.
Campbells’s rectangle ID charm in 14K yellow gold on an 18″ gold chain is pictured on super model Kate Bock in the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. The rectangle ID charm is from Susan Campbell’s personal collection of customizable charms; the SAM Collection.
Campbell, owner of Susan Campbell Jewelry, a retail boutique in downtown Pensacola, began sculpting a la carte charms in 2009 for sale in her retail boutique. The collection has grown into a comprehensive line of chains, sculpted charms and gemstones in silver and gold, with a palette of fashionable colors and custom stamping for customers with names, dates, letters and phrases.
The SAM collection is housed in Pensacola at the SAM Spot, “a charm workshop” in the back of the retail store Susan Campbell Jewelry. Campbell’s business concept, the Sam Spot, was a finalist in the Pensacola Business challenge coordinated by Quint and Rishey Studer.
The works of two designers featured in Campbell’s retail boutique, Susan Campbell Jewelry, are also prominently featured in the same Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Both Sarah Graham Metalsmithing and Studio Waterfall fill the pages and can be seen in over 10 images in the magazine alongside mainstream designers like David Yurman and H. Stern.
“It’s exciting to see the jewelry we provided on these lovely ladies, and I am thrilled to have my very own piece in such a major magazine. We have worked steadily these last seven years in Pensacola, developing a niche for “Indie” designers, and when we had the opportunity to send items to SI we jumped at it! And, out of the thousands of submissions they receive, they chose not only my design (the rectangle ID necklace), but two of my favorite designers, both of which are in my personal collection. Both my husband and I wear Studio Waterfall wedding jewelry, and Sarah Graham’s flowering coral ring was a gift to me from my husband soon after our daughter, Simone, was born. And it’s not often I am caught without my ID charm necklace with diamonds and a giant pearl.” Campbell said.
