Sarah Drew loves living in St Austell, Cornwall where she can spend plenty of time outdoors on local beaches and in the woods with her family and dogs, collecting beach plastic, sea-glass, driftwood, ghostnet, twigs and rusty metal.
Using recycled materials and ‘rubbish’ in this way is a sustainable way of creating unique pieces that aren’t a strain on new resources and whose material components are traceable. She also sources traceable boulder opals from Australia and collects amethysts, aquamarine and other crystals from local sites in Cornwall to make statement necklaces.
Sarah Drew also loves teaching accessible jewellery workshops using found materials, simple techniques and silversmithing skills. She makes them as affordable as possible and straight-forward enough so people can continue making at home.
