Sarah designs and produces several new seasonal collections each year. She specializes in metal
mesh jewelry, belts and handbags. Each piece is handmade to order by local artisans under Sarah's
supervision in Oxford, Alabama, using materials primarily made in the USA with stones imported from
Europe. The pieces are created from brass screening by folding and bending the material. It is
then plated or oxidized and finished by hand painting with bronze powders mixed in a lacquer base.
Sarah discovered the beauty and versatility of bronze screening and other wire materials while
studying sculpture at the Philadelphia College of Art. After graduating in 1994, she stayed in
Philadelphia and applied her skills and understanding of metal to develop a process of forming
these materials into wonderful floral, leaf and insect representations, as well as abstract forms.
She looks to her extensive world travel experiences for inspiration. Her knowledge of art history
and design influence her varied design approach. Although constantly searching for uncommon and
unique materials, she makes sure each piece contains an element of woven wire. Over the years her
work has been featured several times in trade publications and top fashion magazines such as Vogue,
Mademoiselle, In-Style, Glamour and McCalls.
