Biography:

Sarah King launched her first jewellery collection in 1992 that was bought by Barneys, New York and Tokyo. She has explored unusual combinations of materials – particularly carved wood with inlaid silver, gold or pearls and coloured frosted resin with silver.
 
Since her solo ‘ Light Constructions’ exhibition in Tokyo 2003, Sarah's work has explored space and absence using largely hollow forms.  Some are cast in silver or resin with material removed while others are built up with strands of precious metals laser-welded together to create the final shape.  More recently 18ct gold laser-welded pieces have been combined with scattered diamonds.

Sarah King works from her studio in Cockpit Arts, Holborn where pieces may be commissioned and she enjoys the process of creating unique pieces through discussion with clients.

Sarah King is a member of Design Nation, Craft Central, Crafts Council Selected Index of Makers and Contemporary Applied Arts.
