In high school, Susan Segal enjoyed making jewelry and working for a local silversmith.
Segal picked up jewelry making again about eight years ago and will be selling her handmade jewelry at Winnetka Artisan’s Fair.
The Winnetka realtor says she uses only semi-precious stones, sterling silver and gold filled products for her jewelry.
“Natural materials inspire me in the sense that they are from all over the world,” Segal said. “Rotary and my jewelry have a global, earthy feeling.”

More than 70 artisans, crafters and fair-trade vendors will be offering a variety of unique items such as jewelry, dolls, photos, knit wear, tasty preserves and more from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Wednesday at Winnetka Community House.
Hosted by the Rotary Clubs of Winnetka-Northfield and Wilmette Harbor, the fair’s net proceeds will benefit Rotary International’s End Polio Now Initiative and the Winnetka-Northfield Charitable Foundation’s Community Grant Awards.
