Susan Fiedler is a multi-disciplinary designer and creative entrepreneur committed to raising funds and awareness for charity-related causes through jewelry design.
Previously, Susan founded Soul Flower, which grew to become one of Canada's leading design houses of sterling silver jewelry. The company created jewelry for a variety of clients such as musicians Sarah Mclachlan, the Rolling Stones and Queens of the Stone Age; and fashion brands like Quiksilver's Roxy division.
Throughout the collections, philanthropy is always in the mix: Susan created the Symbol of Hope pendant and cufflinks to promote breast cancer awareness for the Royal Bank of Canada, and the East Van Cross Project (two pendants based on the iconic sculpture) benefitting Pivot Legal Society.
Wanting to put her experience and connections to good use in the world, Susan created the F Cancer bracelet to raise funds and awareness for cancer causes. Since creating the F Cancer bracelet in 2008, more than $300,000 has been raised.

Since then, she has sailed >40,000 nautical miles to 17 countries and participated in international yachting events including the Baja Ha-Ha Cruiser’s Rally and the St. Bart’s Bucket Regatta.
