Sara Gunn is a London-based jewellery designer and finalist for New Designer of the Year in the 2015 UK Jewellery Awards. Sara graduated from the Sir John Cass School of Art and Design in 2012 with first-class honours and has worked from her studio at Cockpit Arts in Holborn since winning the 2013 Cockpit Arts/Clear Insurance Award.
Inspired by everything around her; from urban landscapes and the less glamorous side of city life to organic forms and the cells that make us who we are, Sara combines textured leather and metal to create tactile pieces that are at once gritty and sensual. She draws inspiration for her current collections from microscopic details within the body and London’s urban landscape. The texture characteristic of her jewellery is created through acid etching and embossing, using hand drawn and photographic images.
Each piece of jewellery is individually hand made by Sara. It is also possible to order colour variations or commission a unique piece.
