cambridge contemporary crafts

Sarah Hallowes

“I am a Dorset born designer/maker who graduated from University College Falmouth in 2008 with a BA Hons in Contemporary Crafts. I’m currently based in London, but I visit the coast whenever I can.

I love vintage textiles and children’s books, searching second hand shops for things other people have forgotten.

My work includes handmade buttons and stitching combining the elements I love about fabric and colour. I use lace to imprint designs onto many of my pieces, which results in a beautiful textured surface that’s unique to each piece.

I use cold enamel to colour my buttons and finish them with cotton thread. The end result is a collection of jewellery with a real tactile, playful quality and a look all of its own.

Every piece is unique due to these processes and you can be assured you are receiving a wonderfully crafted piece of jewellery.”
