Sarah is a jeweller and artist working in precious metals and on paper.

Biography

As a jeweller, artist and choreographer, my work captures fleeting moments of movement and sound in precious metals, on paper and on film.

Sarah is a jeweller and choreographer. She has danced professionally for over 25 years with Rambert Dance company and Siobhan Davies Dance before completing an MA at St Martins in Jewellery. She now works on capturing movement and music in metal and on paper.
When choreographing, she reaches beyond shape and form to investigate what drives a certain set of movements. When making jewellery, she works to contain these particular movement qualities within her objects, arresting time to take a closer look at the intricacies of dance, usually so fleeting.
Using a dynamic drawing process, she captures the essence of the movement and sound onto paper, and from these drawings she forges directly into precious metals to maintain a sense of rhythm, direction, speed and flow within the final piece.
Sarah was made Jeweller in Residence at the British Library and is a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust scholar. She has shown her drawings, paintings and jewellery in gallery exhibitions and fairs.
