The Brand: Effortlessly versatile and impeccably fashioned, each SUSANNE VERALLO piece is designed to set you apart. Handcrafted accessories that speak to inspired and empowered women. With a modern and mindful twist on shell jewelry and accessories, the brand successfully achieves the classic yet youthful aesthetic that is distinct to each design.
Craftsmanship is at the heart of our story. We work closely with Cebuano artisans to create our pieces and at the same time help support their livelihood. These master craftsmen have worked with shell for decades, perfecting their skills and mastering the craft. All our jewelry are individually crafted by hand using traditional techniques, with meticulous attention to detail. The process of shell selection and cleaning, polishing, carving, and inlaying may take up to a week to complete a single piece! The result is a unique and beautifully inlaid piece of jewelry that helps support our artisans and continues to preserve a truly Cebuano craft. To preserve the value of our artisans' intricate workmanship, our jewelry are produced in strictly limited numbers, making each design truly limited edition.
