Many people touch each gemstone in its journey from the Earth into your hands: miners who extract the stone from the Earth, cutters who shape natural rock into interesting shapes for gemstones and beads, and the people who trade and sell these stones to the person who makes and sells your jewelry.  At SUSAN ERIKSSON, we are dedicated to using materials that provide safe working conditions for these people and working with companies who use best practices to protect the environment and the health of the people living in mining areas.  

We are also dedicated to the women who wear this jewelry - they make things happen!
