Susan is a sustainable consumer product designer with over 20 years experience designing for the retail market. She holds a BS in Design specializing in Metalsmithing and a Post Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Design.

“Becoming a Sustainable Designer challenges every corner of my existence by completely changing the way I look at life, look at design, and how we as humans are affecting our planet. We need to have a metamorphosis of behavior that honors our partnership with our environment.”
By using recycled metals, conflict free diamonds and responsibly mined stones east fourth street brings you beauty with a conscience, jewlery that you’ll be proud to know is a commitment to a socially and environmentally responsible lifestyle.

The inspiration for Susan’s work comes from the belief that we must tread lightly and honorable on our earth. “As an artist and designer, the process of creation cannot be tied to waste or destruction of our natural rescources. If we are to communicate with each other through art, we must do it with as little impact to the environment as possible.”
