Susan Ellenton

Susan’s work brings together her love of nature, interest in technical innovation, and exploration of body-centred knowing. Although better known as a musician and naturalist, Susan has been creating in silver since 1973, when she took her first job assisting a hippie silversmith in Auckland NZ.  In recent years she has been particularly focused on sintering techniques and is the first Canadian to achieve international accreditation in this field throughout the Metal Clay Masters Registry.

Become a Raincoaster

Giving to Raincoast enables you to protect what you love most.

For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC. Thanks to your generous donations, among many other accomplishments, we have been able to end commercial trophy hunting of large carnivores in over 38,000 square kilometers of the Great Bear Rainforest, begin acquiring forest land in order to protect threatened Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems, aid recovery of endangered Southern Resident killer whales by restoring Chinook salmon habitat, and establish a university research lab dedicated to applied conservation science. Strong partnerships are integral to our success.

Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains. 

Biodiversity protection is the most important gift we can give the next generation. Join us as a Raincoaster today!
