Engineer by training, artist by accident, metalsmith by choice, and a passion for material with a history still in search of its future beauty:
Susan Harbourt is an engineer by training, an artist by accident, and a self-taught metalsmith by choice. One fateful night, while Susan and her husband Chris were rewiring their Edwardian era house, fate stepped in. The floor was littered with ninety year old spirals of copper wire. Susan picked up a few scraps and wove them into a bracelet. A spark was ignited! A passion was born in that very moment. Now Susan loves to experiment with a variety of metals and materials to see where her hammer takes her. There is an unequaled satisfaction in experiencing the magic of transforming dismissive scraps of metal into amazing works of art. She primarily works in recycled sterling silver and reclaimed copper, making an array of rings, necklaces, bracelets, bookmarks, and sentimental gifts.
