Sarah Parker-Eaton

Sarah graduated from the University of Northumbria in 3-D Design. Since graduating she has exhibited widely and her work is held in both museums and private collections in the UK and abroad.

In her own words: The distinctive and quirky jewellery I make reflects a joy in exploring natural forms through drawing. I am particularly fascinated by the textures, shapes and patterns seen in plankton, tiny seeds and microscopic marine flora and fauna. Each piece of my jewellery has been inspired by sketches made at Kew Gardens, the Natural History Museum or walks in the countryside around my home. I work in silver and gold, hand fabricating each design using a mixture of techniques such as piercing, carving and forging. Much of my work is given a dark lustrous finish using oxidisation and small details are highlighted with a polish.
