By incorporating innovative materials with her exceptional design sense, Sarah Graham creates jewelry that is unlike anything else; organic, textural, with a muted palate that is subtly feminine, yet substantial; unique, yet universal in its appeal. The natural inspiration behind the jewelry – whether cast directly from Jacaranda Pods and decayed wood or rendered in wax from a microscopic view of single cell marine organisms – gives her designs a texture and feel that makes them infinitely wearable. But it is the matte black finish of oxidized cobalt chrome juxtaposed with 18k yellow, rose and white gold, set with colored diamonds, that is its’ most eye-catching element.
Sarah’s statement making jewelry is exciting and elegant with a constant stream of new designs flowing from her studio every year. This, along with Sarah’s unique combination of business and retail experience, traveling, a rigorous apprenticeship and her dedication to providing amazing customer service to her clients, ensure many more years of success for Sarah Graham Metalsmithing.
Sarah is currently vice president of the American Jewelry Design Council. She currently resides in San Francisco , CA and works with a staff of seven at her Dog Patch neighborhood studio.
