Biography:

Born in Edinburgh, Sarah escaped with her parents to New Zealand and escaped back to the UK in 1984. Sarah acquired her bench skills from John Cass at UCL and her 3D CAD skills from Holts Academy, and continues to expand her knowledge base and technical virtuosity from her workshop in Clerkenwell, London, a stones' throw from the Hatton Garden Jewellery quarter. Whilst still making by hand, Sarah uses 3D CAD extensively in her work, having worked until 2005 as a commercial computer software designer, it comes naturally to her. This technique has allowed her to develop her very individual and cohesive style. Her skill in cutting edge 3D design technology is unique, attracting high praise and awards for the architectural and sculptural quality of the designs. Sarah's intention is to create intelligent designs that bring aesthetic pleasure, as jewellery, and also as objects in their own right. She is very much inspired by the urban environment, adding her own organic interpretation. Engineering and problem solving play their part in her designs and her solutions are as much part of each piece as the design itself.
