Sarah Kate McAdam

Sarah’s work is concerned with the enjoyment of exploring materials and colour. Since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2006 she has combined her jewellery work with roles within arts administration.

Sarah is inspired by urban environments and the small details found materials, structures and patterns that can be found in unexpected places. While certain patterns, techniques and motifs recur in her work, she treats each piece as a small sketch in materials, using processes such as saw piercing, wirework and mixed materials, and lets each one develop its own micro-personality.

Sarah rarely produces the same piece twice, preferring instead to work more spontaneously with materials including precious metals, wood, and semi-precious beads and stones.
