Sara Gunn

Artist's statement

Sara Gunn creates bold and distinctive fashion jewellery in leather and metals. Rich textures adorn elegant, curvaceous leather cuffs and angular rings alike. Her belief that that jewellery should be as individual as the wearer has led her to explore organic processes such as acid etching, which enable a high degree of variation.

Based in London, Sara was a finalist for New Designer of the Year in the 2015 UK Jewellery Awards. Sara graduated from the Sir John Cass Department of Art and Design with first class honours in 2012 and has worked from her studio at Cockpit Arts in Holborn since winning the Cockpit Arts/Clear Insurance Award in 2013. 

Sara draws inspiration for her current collections from microscopic details within the body and London's urban landscape. The textures characteristic of her work are created through acid etching and embossing using hand drawn and photographic images. 

Each piece of jewellery is hand made by Sara in limited production runs and many pieces are one-off. Sara aims to create unique, covetable pieces that are a pleasure to wear.

Sara’s ‘Skin’ and ‘Souvenir’ collections have been well received by the press, appearing in press including The FT How To Spend It Gift Guide, Daily Mail, Marie Claire, Hedonist and Fault Magazine
