This item was turned out perfect! Sarah was very quick to respond, and was able to create exactly what I wanted. I received the item within three days of ordering. Great service!

Updates

This might be my favorite series yet! An original landscape painting farmed as one-of-kind pendants - "The Mountains at Night" - available in copper or brass.
New in the shop! Modern geometric dangle earrings made from brass and ... you'll never guess ... plastic laminate! This common material has an elegant look when laser cut & pieced together like this.
Did you catch my brand new series of needle felted landscapes? These small paintings are done with colorful wool fiber (called roving). I usually needle felt in 3D so trying my hand at flat work was a fun challenge!

About

Who's Sam, anyway?

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.

Hey there! I'm Sarah Mandell (my initials are SAM, which is where my shop name comes from), and I'm the brains and busy hands behind Once Again Sam. This indie craft business based in Greenville, SC, started out as a hobby in 2009, but after a few years it has become my dream job come true.

I graduated from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2005, and my career background is in commercial interior design, which I still do on the side (it's a pretty fun day job so I couldn't give it up altogether!) 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 all day every day.

When I'm not making leather jewelry or needle felting curious things, I'm still creating, but with words writing fiction. I've had one novel published so far and the next is due out in a few months. It's fair to say I live to create!

My handmade jewelry features repurposed leather and wood, and my needle felted fiber art called "Felted Curiosities" range from realistic looking plants, to quirky sea creatures, and even anatomical hearts.

If the item IS confirmed as delivered (according to tracking number), but hasn't arrived, I will ask the buyer to file a claim with USPS, and would be glad to walk you through that process.
