My Story

         I am Sugi, the creator of the exquisite, original jewelry that you see in the photographs on this website. Fogbird Designs offers unique designs that incorporate the use of delicate chains, beads, and semi-precious stones. 


Why I Design Jewelry

Every year, I go to Chennai, South India and I spend a lot of time with my kids in my father's village. I wanted to continue what my father had done for years for his village, so I started of buying sports materials(soccer balls, cricket bats, balls, chess board and so on) for a small school. The kids really enjoyed them and it filled me with joy to see those happy kids. I came to realize that helping the kids was my calling and passion. I did not want to spend my husband's hard earned money for my charity and this motivated me to make good jewelry for a good cause. Fogbird Desgins launched, as well as my charity called “The Next Vision.” 


Unique and Elegant Fogbird Jewelry

Fogbird necklaces, pins, rings, and earrings are created to match all of the vibrant colors of your wardrobe. I believe that jewelry expresses your personality and that it adds fun to your life. The original items are handcrafted in the studio, and as I make them, I imagine how fashionable you will look, wearing an original Fogbird Design. They are also the perfect gift for your loved ones, who will appreciate the value of a handcrafted piece of jewelry. 


Proceeds Go to Help The Children

All sale proceeds go towards my charity. I have 2 boys ages 13 and 10 who also help me with my beading and my charity work. Fogbird Design jewelry is delightfully priced at an affordable rate.
