About the Instructor
Sarah attended East Carolina University and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts – Art Education with a Concentration in Metal Design, in 1993. In addition she has also studied at Penland School of Arts and Crafts for eight sessions. After years of trying her hand at various art related jobs in different cities (gallery owner, jewelry design for a manufacturing company, and studio assistant), Sarah has once again settled in Raleigh, NC. She now splits her time between her studio and teaching. Sarah’s aesthetic when designing over the years is to approach jewelry as small scale sculpture.She creates clean, geometric, and architecturally influenced pieces in sterling silver, cast bronze, powder coating, and other mixed materials. These are mainly one-of-a-kind, limited edition, and production pieces of jewelry and most recently wall installations. She is not abandoning her jewelry roots, rather looking for the opportunity and challenge of artistic evolution and the idea that worn or not they are works of art.See More Classes By Instructor Instructor Website
