Susan Koch

Medium: Metal

Region: The Islands


Summers spent on Galiano Island fostered a fascination with sea glass and beach stones that has stayed with Susan Koch throughout her life. These elements are the focal point of her unique hand-crafted jewellery pieces. Susan spends a ridiculous amount of time exploring old ocean dumpsites and scouring shorelines for just the perfect stone or piece of glass. Susan’s training in silversmithing has taken her from Vancouver Island to Seattle, Mendocino, San Francisco and the mountains of central Mexico. For Susan there isn’t enough time in the day or room on the bench for her pursuits.
