“With a deep understanding of craftsmanship, a skilled eye for design and an innate sense of capturing what you desire, I believe jewelry is so much more than sublime adornment, it nourishes our very souls. My mission is to design exceptional jewelry that celebrates you and your story while strengthening your connections to the past, present and future.” ~Sarah
A lifelong artist and Virginia native, Sarah EK Muse earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University where she discovered her love of textile design, metalsmithing and jewelry. With a newfound passion for metal, she pursued additional experience to develop a broader understanding of the materials by continuing her studies with international master metalsmiths and goldsmiths via intensive workshops throughout the United States. Sarah eventually secured a private mentorship, refining her skills in classic and modern metalsmithing techniques and instilling in her the value of impeccable craftsmanship and interpersonal design.
After years of continued education and experimentation, Sarah has developed an aesthetic all her own. Her award-winning work has been featured in various publications and exhibited in galleries and museums and resides in permanent civic and private collections throughout the United States.
In 2009, Sarah’s family moved to their mountainside homestead. After a seven-year “homesteading/soccer Mom” sabbatical, Sarah reinaugurated her private studio with a new passion and focus, refining the scope of her creativity, to design inspired jewelry collections and exceptionally meaningful bespoke jewelry for her amazing clients.
Along with Sarah’s passion to create is her desire to immerse herself into her community. She taught private jewelry and metalsmithing classes for 20-years, is the founding member of the Southwestern Virginia Metal Arts Guild and curated / juried several regional and statewide exhibitions. She's also served in many roles for a variety of local and statewide arts and cultural organizations.
Sarah also hosts intimate Private Retreats for Jewelry Designers & Creatives, looking to be inspired, recharged, expand their skills and up-level their business through effective business strategy, conversation, creative budgeting and holistic mindset practicesand be one with nature.
My greatest passion is creating exceptional jewelry designed exclusively for you. I take infinite pride in capturing the essence of your personality, your style, your story and interweaving them into luxurious and meaningful jewels to be cherished for years to come.
I'm here to address your queries and serve as your guide throughout the entire design process.
