About Us

Sarah Collins

Sarah discovered early on her passion for collecting. She found beauty in that tiny glinting sparkle on the footpath and took delight in the gathering of small things.
She became fascinated with adornment and decoration. There was a natural progression to study Jewellery Design at Sheffield Hallam University. During this time she was awarded a travel bursary from the Worshipful Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire, which allowed her to study for 6 months in Seoul at Kookmin University. She graduated from Sheffield in 2003 with a 2:1 BA Hons.
The time she spent in Korea has influenced her designs vastly and inspired a great passion for travel. Sarah then took the opportunity to explore the globe with her camera and sketchbook. Travel photography and collecting found objects allowed her to document her journey.
On her return she studied further under the guidance of Chris Philipson MA RCA developing her silversmithing and goldsmithing techniques.
Sarah launched her collection in 2006. She creates designer jewellery from her studio in Harrogate. She is happy to work to commission and specialises in bespoke bridal tiaras.
