Sarah Pulvertaft

Published: 10.04.2021


Sarah set up her first workshop in London in 1995. Now based in Oxfordshire, she employs traditional jewellery-making techniques and precious metals to make jewellery using small, repeated and articulating elements to create subtly shifting, undulating surfaces. Sarah exhibits regularly in the UK and overseas including at Goldsmiths’ Fair and Made in London, MAD about Jewelry in New York, and Sieraad Art Fair in Amsterdam. In 2020 she made a series of work collaboratively with jeweller Jed Green and embroiderer Beatrice Mayfield. Working as LOT Collaboration they exhibited 6 brooches at Collect 2020 at Somerset House in London.


Sarah is fascinated by kinetic movement in both jewellery and sculpture. She enjoys the added dimension that movement gives to a piece and uses small repeated elements, usually cubes, to create subtly undulating surfaces on her pieces. Fascinated by repetition in nature she seeks to re-create something of the same meditative quality that you might experience looking at a field of grasses or the boughs of a tree. She sometimes uses differently coloured metals and gemstones to create patterns on the gently shifting surfaces.
