About the Artist: Sara Amrhein
My name is Sara Amrhein and I am an American artist living in Florence Italy. I have been working in polymer since 2009. As a jewelry artist, I specialize in fun, colorful, and often romantic statement pieces, with an emphasis on necklaces and earrings. Much of my work is inspired by historic costume and floral symbolism. With an eye on the opulence of the Renaissance, more is more philosophy, and modern-day fashion, my designs are for the bold and adventurous woman who is a romantic at heart. Over the years I have participated in countless fairs, jewelry shows, and markets. My work was published in the 2016 edition of Polymer Clay Journey's and I have sold my designs internationally in boutiques in the United States, the UK, Belgium, Japan, and Italy. I have also had three workshops with storefronts of my own here in the city of Florence, where I not only sold my work directly to the public but where I also conducted numerous workshops and hosted internships for both local and study abroad students from all over the world.
