Susan Harbourt, the artist behind Susan Harbourt Designs, is an engineer by training, an artist by accident, and a self taught metalsmith by choice.

One fateful night, she was helping her husband update the original electrical system installed during the 1930′s as a part of the Rural Electrification Act in their Edwardian era house. Scattered all over the floor were piles of lovely aged copper wire that they had just removed from the walls of the old house.

Susan Harbourt, the artist behind Susan Harbourt Designs, is an engineer by training, an artist by accident, and a self taught metalsmith by choice.

One fateful night, she was helping her husband update the original electrical system installed during the 1930′s as a part of the Rural Electrification Act in their Edwardian era house. Scattered all over the floor were piles of lovely aged copper wire that they had just removed from the walls of the old house. In an absent minded gesture to pass the time while waiting for her next moment to help, she picked up a few scraps and wove them into a bracelet. A spark was ignited and Luster 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 feeling the magic of making metal transform from something you would dismiss as a scrap to an amazing work of art. She primarily works in recycled sterling silver and reclaimed copper making an array of rings, necklaces, bracelets, bookmarks, and sentimental gifts and is in heaven when at her bench with all tools in action; saw, torch, hammers, anvil, and the list goes on…

Let Susan help you find your own Luster and Outshine the Ordinary.
