Jewelry launches at Lilith

2010

Former Deep Cove resident Susan Fiedler has partnered with West Vancouver songstress Sarah McLachlan to create a jewelry line that is being sold at Lilith concerts across North America.

The line, designed by McLachlan, consists of a sterling silver necklace ($100) and earrings ($90) in a flowing design. The items can be purchased as a set for a discounted price. They're for sale online as well as at concert venues and at Y Yoga.

"I have always had a great love for jewelry," McLachlan said in a press release. "I wanted to create something beautiful that people could treasure as a memento of this event. I chose the leaf motif as it holds all the elements of nature's creation, the seasons and the passing of time, change and renewal."

Fiedler and McLachlan have been making jewelry together for her tours since McLachlan's first Lilith Fair in 2006.

MacLachlan has been a longtime supporter and wearer of Fiedler's Soul Flower jewelry.

"Sarah is great to work with," Fiedler said in a press release. "She really understands how to design jewelry, and we share the same values when it comes to making socially and environmentally responsible product from eco-friendly reclaimed sterling silver right here in Canada."

Fiedler started her jewelry business in Vancouver in 1991. She has designed jewelry for other musicians' tours such as the Rolling Stones and the Barenaked Ladies. She designed the spirited F* Cancer Embrace Life bracelet after her own experience with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The bracelet has raised more then $50,000 in support of InspireHealth, an integrated cancer clinic in Vancouver.

Fiedler recently sold Soul Flower to her longtime general manager, according to her website, and now works on creative projects with mission-based businesses and social enterprises.

Lilith Fair, a festival that celebrates women in music, made a stop in Vancouver's Ambleside Park on July 1 and will be visiting several North American cities over the course of the summer.
