Inspiration is found in the everyday, be it from her Welsh culture and heritage or that of others encountered away from home.  The key items in this collection are made from silver and re-claimed Welsh slate is inspired by how human beings keep their emotions hidden to only be shown to a certain chosen few.  The key items in the collection consist of two concentric circles with hand pierced text placed on top of each other which rotate in order to conceal and reveal the sentence within the item.  When the writing on both circles line up the phrase is revealed and vice versa.  The concealing and revealing of the sentence represents the concealing and revealing of human emotions.  A Welsh sentence is used; ‘Dau Enaid, Un Daith’ (‘Two Souls, One Journey’) but can be customised to include any short phrase.  The collection was further developed to include laser engraved slate components and variations on the circle form.

Sara’s objective is to create simple, sleek and contemporary items that are original and intriguing yet highly wearable.and revealing of the sentence represents the concealing and revealing of human emotions. A Welsh sentence is used; ‘Dau Enaid, Un Daith’ (‘Two Souls, One Journey’) but can be customised to include any short phrase.  The collection was further developed to include laser engraved slate components and variations on the circle form.  Sara’s objective is to create simple, sleek and contemporary items that are original and intriguing yet highly wearable.
