Design forward, nature driven.

Emergent Jewel is a creative arts exploration. I’m Susan Bores, owner and a fine artist, photographer and jewelry designer.   

 My artistic prints are for your home or office, and for display or sale in galleries and select venues in the Hudson Valley (and beyond). My custom, handcrafted jewelry is for sale by special order or found at choice local and regional markets, festivals, and pop-ups. 

My style is nature-driven, my reverence of life and love of the outdoors often takes center stage. Reflecting both realism and more impressionistic narratives, contemporary style blended with natural flair makes my work come to life.

Emergent Jewel reflects the art nouveau movement and its influence of nature on design – the heart of my business. It also reflects the memories of an image emerging in a darkroom, a piece of jewelry coalescing from its individual components...and of our human journey and evolution.
