Sara Gunn creates bold and distinctive fashion jewellery in leather and metals. Rich textures adorn elegant, curvaceous leather cuffs and angular rings alike. Sara's 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.
Sources of inspiration range from the urban landscape and gritty London streets to microscopic details within the body.
Each piece of jewellery is hand made by Sara in her London workshop in limited production runs, many pieces are one-off. Sara aims to create unique, covetable pieces that are a pleasure to wear.
Sara’s jewellery has featured in the FT How To Spend It Gift Guide, Daily Mail, Marie Claire, Hedonist, Fault, and been worn by Charli XCX for Under the Radar Magazine.
Sara works from her studio at Cockpit Arts in Holborn where she has been based since winning the 2013 Cockpit Arts Clear Insurance Award and was proud to be a New Designer of the Year finalist at the 2015 UK Jewellery Awards.
