“I have been designing and making acrylic and silver jewellery in Brighton since graduating in Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Plastics BA(hons) from Brighton Polytechnic in 1991. I have been a member of the co-operative Rose Hill Workshops since 1994.
My inspiration comes from my love of colour and pattern, particularly 1950’s textiles by designers such as Lucienne Day and Jacqueline Groag. I love their playfulness and lightness of touch.
I enjoy playing with the properties of clear dyed acrylic; light, reflection, and strong colour. I hand manipulate the surface using etching, sanding, dying and polishing, and use contrasts of polished/matte and colour/clear to add interest.
I aim for a highly finished quality to give my jewellery a precious feel, and I hope my designs are unique, fun and a pleasure to wear.” – Sarah Packington
Care Instructions: Colours are dyed onto the surface of acrylic. To prevent fading, avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight. Clean using a mild detergent, warm water and soft cloth. Or a specialist silver cloth. Do not spray perfume, hairspray near the jewellery or other solvents on areas where the jewellery will be worn.
