Born in South Wales and settling in the low country of Charleston in 1990, Sarah Amos brings an ancient approach to the modern world, creating jewelry that’s knock-out gorgeous, yet everyday wearable.
Sarah uses recycled gold that she alloys down to a uniquely rich 22 karat, creating something similar to alluvial gold that was used by the ancient Greeks and Romans to make amulets and religious objects. She makes her jewelry by hand, without the use of molds, as is the case for the vast majority of jewelry on the market. Dedication to her craft and devotion to detail is something Sarah is known for and undoubtedly keeps collectors fascinated with her work.
With an exceptional eye for color, Sarah chooses just the right precious and semi-precious stones to create an eye-catching pop against her gold.
While admired for her refined technique, Sarah is not precious about her process. After learning from the greats of her field, she taught goldsmithing at Kulicke-Stark Academy in New York City. She made the jewelry for a prestigious antiquities gallery on Madison Avenue and created jewelry models for none other than The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
These days, Sarah is happiest working in her sun-filled studio by the rushing waters of the Stono River, creating commissioned pieces and one-of-a-kind treasures for Helena Fox Fine Art in downtown Charleston, South Carolina.
