Biography:

Award winning designer Sarah Herriot is renowned for her sculptural, modern jewellery, which she creates from her studio in Bloomsbury, together with her trusty assistant Scout. As a self-taught jeweller, Sarah has a unique perspective and approach to design. Her jewellery attracts praise for its simplicity of form, weight and natural elegance. Deceptively simple, well-considered designs have earned her an impressive list of clients, both in the UK and abroad. Sarah uses 3D CAD and traditional handmaking techniques to create her distinctive modern jewellery. An early adopter of CAD technology, Sarah has an affinity for computer-based design which stems from her previous career as a software designer. Sarah has developed a cohesive, individual style characterised by strong graphic lines, architectural forms and dramatic contrast between light and dark. Engineering and problem solving play their part in her designs and the solutions become an integral part of the design. 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 of Sarah’s work. The current range can be viewed on Sarah’s website, and is available from the workshop by appointment. You will find Sarah’s work stocked by major London jewellery galleries, as well as stores and galleries around the world. Contact Sarah directly to arrange an appointment or commission a unique piece of jewellery.
