Creating Jewellery in Wood

In October 2019, Sarah's book Creating Jewellery in Wood was published. Pushing the boundaries of jewellery design beyond metal, the book follows a series of 24 projects and offers readers step-by-step technique guides on woodworking for jewellery. As an introduction to using wood in contemporary jewellery, Creating Jewellery in Wood explores a sculptural approach to the use of this versatile material.
