Sarah is a London based jewellery designer, working out of Clerkenwell. She was born in Scotland, raised in New Zealand and has lived in London for the past 20 years, A self taught designer maker, she has avoided fashion jewellery, preferring to produce work that has enduring qualities of form and design.
Her jewellery attracts praise for its simplicity of form and natural elegance, enduring qualities of form and design. Her deceptively simple and well thought through designs have resulted in an impressive client base. Her work has been admired by the Georg Jensen company as well as people such as Jasper Morrison, Andie McDowell and Jane Campion among many others.
Inspired by the inherent qualities of precious metals combined with natural ergonomic forms, her jewellery is simple, elegant, and has a weight and substance that makes it unique. Her continued preoccupation and engagement with the tension element in her bangles, involves the wearer in a process which she sees as inherent in the fundamental nature of things.
Engineering and problem solving play their part in her designs and her solutions are as much of each piece as the design itself. The click as the tension bangle clasp is closed provides an ultimately satisfactory sound; this is an example of the rigour and elegance found in all her work.
