Over the years, while working on thermoplastics like polyethylene (PE), Sarah Enoch developed a unique technique that became the basis for her research into form, colour and composition.

Artist list

Sarah Enoch
The artist takes her inspiration from nature: botanic shapes, landscapes and phenomena like twilight and moonlight. Each polyethylene form of Sarah’s new collection of necklaces was made separately. She starts by arranging coloured PE-granules and threads into a kind of mini-collage. By heating and pressing these collages, they merge into separate, very light and flexible forms. Attached to a silver chain, these forms (each piece can consist of about 150 forms) become a beautiful, sumptuous necklace.
