Sarah Mandell's Profile
It's not that I don't know what I want to do when I grow up, it's that I want to do so many things.
I'm Sarah Mandell, the brains and busy hands behind Once Again Sam, an indie craft business based in Greenville, SC, where I design and make jewelry using re-purposed materials such as leather and wood. I'm also a fiber artist, and my needle felted work ranges from realistic-looking plants, to quirky sea creatures, and even anatomical hearts.
My education and career background is in commercial interior design, which I still do on the side, but these days my primary job is as a Maker. I never imagined I could earn a living this way, as a self employed working artist, but I feel incredibly blessed to have the chance to create full time.
