Oxford based Sushilla saw her first example of an uncut, unpolished jewel in the raw while travelling with her parents from Lusaka to Livingston; on the roadside she saw large chunks of rough Amethyst. Decades later, while sourcing semi precious stones in India, Sushilla saw a rough unpolished piece of Smithsonite which reminded her of the blue sky over the Victoria Falls. All these life experiences have shaped her vision for her jewellery which she creates in a simplistic way to show the jewels in their most natural way.
