East Fourth Street is a jewelry label created by Minneapolis, Minnesota based designer Susan Crow. Crow is a graduate of the University Of Minnesota's sustainable design program where she perfected her craft for jewelry design and construction.

Fusing a luxe aesthetic with sustainable practices, the designer creates elegant pieces that are made using "recycled gold, sterling silver and recycled or ethically-mined diamonds and Fair trade gemstones". The result of her up-cycled materials is East Fourth Steet's 'Flat Ring Series', a collection of understated gold rings that are not both beautiful and sustainable.

Embracing simplicity, designer Susan Crow's pieces draw from industrial and mechanical inspirations. The designer is a member of SNAG, Ethical Metalsmiths, Fair Jewelry Action, The Ethical Fashion Forum and The Fellowship 500.
