handmade sustainable jewelry + accessories
The East Fourth Street eco-jewelry collection is a culmination of designer Susan Crow’s deep connection to design and core belief that we need to preserve and restore our environment, not take away from it. It is a socially responsible brand of luxury jewelry handmade from environmentally and ethically sourced Fair trade or reused precious metals and gemstones. The jewelry is designed and handmade in their low-impact, environmentally conscious Minnesota studio.
Artisan jewelry designer Susan Crow’s raw attraction to industrial simplicity, mechanically and aesthetically, and their symbiotic relationship, is made evident in her clean, modern designs.

Good vs. Evil. Trickery vs. Heroism. Compassion vs. Greed. A sharp joke, a sly jab, a treacherous attack, a band of underground heroes rally for those who cannot. Robin Hood is a production of Purple Door Youth Theater, an educational program of the Northfield Arts Guild.
