Sarah Cavender Metalworks

"I endeavor to create jewelry that is a joy to wear and also beautiful to display as an object of art. My intention is that the pieces are timeless and will endure the fluctuating trends of fashion accessories."

Sarah Cavender designs and produces several new seasonal collections each year. Each piece is hand-made to order by local artisans under Cavender's supervision in Oxford, Alabama, using materials made primarily in the USA with stones imported from Europe.

Cavender's knowledge of art history and design influence her varied design approach. Constantly in search of uncommon and unique materials, the artist maintains a design criteria in which each piece contains an element of woven wire. In this philosophy she continues to consistently produce a line of jewelry, belts, and handbags that are truly beautiful to wear and admire as objects of art.

Sarah Cavender discovered the beauty and versatility of bronze screening and other wire materials while studying at the Philadelphia College of Art where she majored in sculpture. After graduating in 1984, she remained in Philadelphia and applied her skills and understanding of metal to develop a process of forming these materials into wonderful floral and insect representations as well as abstract form.
