Amáli Designer, Sara Freedenfeld, discovered her passion for making jewelry while backpacking through South America. Drawing inspiration from the natural landscapes and vibrant textiles that colored her travels, Sara set out to create a line of jewelry that delicately unites the natural simplicity of handcrafted artistry with the sophistication and glamour of high fashion.
Aside from the small gifts of knowledge she received during her travels, which continue to influence her work today, Sara is largely a self-taught artist. She is often inspired by textiles, and many of her pieces have a fabric-like sensibility, created by intricately weaving chains and stones to create rich textures.
“I am inspired to make pieces for the woman who sees jewelry no differently than the art she displays on the walls of her home. She appreciates beautiful things, but she’s not hungry for symbols of status and wealth.”
