Susan Crow

Professional Certificate in Sustainable Design / MCAD (2009)

Jewelry designer Susan Crow is the creative mind behind the brand, East Fourth Street. Once referred to by Huffington Post as the “woman with a passion for sustainable jewels for the conscientious person,” Susan’s work is a marriage of design and socially responsible ethics.

Clean lines, organic shapes created in 18kt gold for a client seeking minimalist elegance without complexity, characterize her work. East Fourth Street was recently included in the leading B2B Italian Fashion Trend magazine Collezioni Accessori’s Eco-Feature because Susan is devoted to responsible jewelry supply chains, design practices and was one of the first designers to bring Fairmined gold to U.S. jewelry buyers in 2013.

She sources diamonds from certified reclaimed diamond suppliers, colored gemstones from suppliers that have established programs that support the mining and cutting communities that mine and produce them, and using Fairmined metals that return profits back to artisanal mining communities ensuring that their gold is mercury-free. Her studio strives for zero waste, low energy, and responsible chemical use.
