Sarah Warsop

2013 QEST Garfield Weston Foundation Scholar - Jewellery Design & Making
West Sussex

Sarah embarked upon her new vocation as a jewellery designer and maker after a successful career as a dance artist, choreographer and teacher. The notation that she uses in her designs could not have arrived without Sarah’s history of movement and mark making. She captures in jewellery the complexities and characteristics of human action and precisely scales that down to be worn on a moving body. Anticlastic forming is a physical process concerned with working and moving the metal to create exceptionally dynamic forms. A QEST Garfield Weston Foundation Scholarship enabled Sarah to study with Benjamin Storch, one of the main exponents of this skill.
