About Sue

Sue Gallagher is the owner and designer of ladeDAH! She has enjoyed making things all her life and it was this creativity that led her to her “other” career as an occupational therapist. Now beading has become her occupational therapy! Originally from Kansas, Sue’s designs reflect her easy-going style and cowgirl spirit. Her unique designs are organic and natural, using fine silver, precious and semi-precious stones, lampwork and pearls. All pieces are handmade by Sue who travels across the country to hand select the silver, beads, and notions for creating her one-of-a-kind jewelry.

Her favorite beads are made by the Karen Hill Tribe in Thailand. The Hill Tribe uses fine silver (99% pure) and primitive tools to craft beads that have an organic look and feel and are tarnish resistant.
