Sarah Kelley's Profile
Handcrafted jewelry is collaborative and connective. It connects the maker of the beads, with the maker of the piece, with the person who chooses that piece to say something about themselves, even through time and space.
--a short personal history--
I'm a self-taught artist in the Deep South near Savannah Georgia. When I'm not working I'm reading or drinking something hot while I cuddle my furred or feathered friends. Whatever I'm doing I carry with me a love of the art of personal adornment, a fascination with its history and an anticipation of its future.
I fell in love with beads during a crisis. The beadbox was therapy and since then I've made this my full-time job and branched from strung pieces into beadweaving and wire-working. I'm ever intrigued by what adornment evokes in us and says about us.
