Susan Wheeler Design


Susan has a formal background in art and poetry but came to jewelry through the craft school and Park District studio in Chicago.  

She is passionate about responsible sourcing and works to further the cause of responsible jewelry practices throughtout the jewelry industry.

Susan sculpts jewelry from clay and sun bakes it before molding and casting into 18 karat Fairmined gold, creating jewelry that has a natural and organic surface that has been formed without human manipulation but rather with natural elements.

Susan is currently a board member of Ethical Metalsmiths, a Lead on the Initiatives committee of Jewelry Industry Summit and is the founder of The Chicago Responsible Jewelry Conference.

I strive to make uniquely beautiful jewelry that will make a better world community in its creation and existence.
