My name is Susan Harbourt and I am a self-taught metalsmith, with a degree in Materials Engineering, who loves to experiment and see where my hammer takes me. There is something magical about making metal transform from something you would dismiss as a scrap to an amazing work of art. I am in heaven when I am at my bench with all tools in action; saw, torch, hammers, anvil, and the list goes on...

Primarily I work in sterling silver and copper making an array of rings, necklaces, bracelets, and bookmarks. Lately, I have begun to search out old metals with a story that I can reclaim, recycle and reuse to make beautiful items out of. This was inspired by the desire to work with the seemingly miles of copper wire that was removed from my turn of the century house, which was installed in the mid 1930's during the time of Rural Electrification. Oh the stories I bet that that old copper could tell us!

Simply put, I'm just a girl, with a hammer, some metal, and a passion to help you find your own Luster to Outshine the usual.
Your website, DIRECT flickr or DIRECT facebook links where your work can be seen.
