Company description
Susan Landa, founder, owner, and director Susan Landa was born in Brooklyn and raised in Long Island, New York. She studied fashion design at the University of Delaware and fine art photography at the International Center of Photography in New York City. Her first career was designing, crafting, and selling beaded jewelry all over the U. A. Through her travels she chose her favorite city, Portland, Oregon, as her base. Susan's work progressed into a marriage of bead and gemstone.
Enamored with the gem/fossil kingdom, in 1989 she opened The Fossil Cartel in 1989 to share her passion. Now a family business, Susan's husband and kids work part-time in the store and are essential on buying trips.
