Inspired by graphic shapes, mathematical structures and industrial processes, Sarah Angold‘s work strucked our attention to be one of the most extraordinary interpreter of the new age of design jewelry. We met her in Paris for this personal vis-à-vis.
Tell us a bit about your work. Why mathematics is your main source of inspiration?
«Angles, symmetry and equations play an integral part in our graduating aesthetic. For example, for Super Relay necklace, the degree of rotation for each piece was calculated precisely to aid motion in the necklace».
What are the materials more challenging for you?
«We’re known for experimenting with a wide variety of materials including acrylic, gold, brass, resin, corian, and various three- dimensional printing materials. Our latest achievement was discovering how to hand dye plastic polymers with graduating colours (take a look at our Arimine necklace). There’s always a solution to a material challenge and although it can take time we’ve never failed yet».
What are you mainly attracted by in jewelry?
«I’m a magpie, anything shiny!»
Five words to describe your work.
«Fearless, future, collaboration, collision, innovation».
Who’s the person you think whilst creating your pieces?
«Our jewellery is targeted to self-assured and design conscious women who seek jewellery to accentuate and complement their spirit. They, like the jewellery they wear, are unmissable».
«A new idea».
«Agh I’m not allowed to announce any of them yet! Let’s just say that you’ll see collaborations with an aeronautical company, a famous London landmark, a world leading trend agency and a globally recognised architect by the New Year».
