At the heart of my mission is a wish to create a collection which nods its head towards antiquities and ancient crafts. Rome, Egypt and Ancient Greece all have a rich history of jewellery design from which I draw a great deal of inspiration. I then like to marry that alchemy with a more contemporary feel to create pieces of jewellery that are unique, but utterly wearable. I strive to deliver designs that are antithesis of a ‘manufactured’ piece, we create a collection lead by craftsmanship, the wire weaving and the hammered frames and the beaten bands of the rings bear the hallmarks of ‘hands’ not machines.
Stones are Pearls are sourced from all over the world, I work closely with stone dealers I have built a relationship with over the years, I particularly like ‘rose cut’ gems and feel it adds a romance to the stones. All of the jewellery is crafted in my workshop in the lovely market town of Hexham, among the rolling hills of Northumberland. The workshop is a hive of creativity and busyness and I’m lucky to have a small team of production assistants who help me bring my designs to life each day.
All sterling silver and solid gold we use is a from a recycled source and thus less impactful on the environment.
All pieces are designed and handmade right here in lovely Hexham, Northumberland. We’re very proud to be a part of British Craft, and we hope pieces from the collection make a perfect Northumberland Gift. Read more about Sarah and her small creative business here:
Sarah studied History of Art in London and went on to study jewellery at The New York Jewellery School, living in New York for 8 years and beginning the collection there, afterwards returning to the UK to set up a working studio in Northumberland.
“My jewellery is my art and my obsession. I enjoy working with natural stones and ethically sourced metals to create the look and feel of artisan pieces. As the years have gone by the worldwide reach of the internet has enabled the niche following of my jewellery to gain a greater audience, and it’s lovely when customers both near and far come back again to add to their own collection”
