After graduating with a 1st class BSc (Hons) Product Design degree from Bangor University Sara, a fluent Welsh speaker, set up her workshop in her home village on the Llyn Peninsula. Previous to setting up her business she undertook placements with various jewellery designers in order to gain experience in both practical making skills and business operations, which she strongly believes has been her most valuable experiences to date. She further built upon her business knowledge by graduating with a distinction in MSc Business and Entrepreneurship from the University of Liverpool.
Sara creates sterling silver and Welsh slate jewellery inspired by her Welsh culture and heritage. Designs are influenced by a combination of experimentation with new technology such as laser engraving, and traditional craft techniques. Designs often incorporate kinetic components, repetition and an element of personalisation, particularly Welsh phrases.
Sara's objective is to create simple, sleek and contemporary items that are original and intriguing yet highly wearable.
Sara is a part of CGGC/NWJC ('Cywaith Gemwaith Gogledd Cymru'/North Wales Jewellers Collective), a professional members group of contemporary jewellery designer-makers, based across the North of Wales.
