FEATURED ARTISAN: Sarah DeAngelo Jewelry
Fall Market Featured Artisan, Sarah DeAngelo Jewelry, creates feminine jewelry made of unique gemstones and fine metals. By using traditional metalsmithing techniques in innovative ways she creates jewelry with understated flair.
Sarah wasn't always a Jewelry artisan. Her jewelry making story begins long ago:
"I never set out to become a jewelry artist. Life has a funny way of taking you places you never expect! I was on my way to becoming an Occupational Therapist when I was sidetracked by my love of making jewelry. I was waiting tables while finishing the last of my graduate requirements and selling jewelry at a local flea market to support my bead addiction. An extremely rude customer prompted me to impulsively quit my waitress job and off I went to the boutiques to sell my jewelry.
My jewelry was so well received I quickly changed paths and got a degree in goldsmithing. I have never looked back. I feel extremely blessed to be able to make a living doing what I love. My husband works along side me, managing all the business aspects, which allows us to spend more time with our 2 little boys.
My designs are detailed, delicate, and feminine. I have developed my own special techniques combining the traditions of metal smithing, bead stringing, knotting, and wirework to create unique jewelry with understated flair. I use carefully selected stones, sterling silver, 14k gold fill and 14k gold."
