Sarah Packington

I create contemporary acrylic jewellery at Rose Hill Workshop in Brighton. While studying Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Plastics BA (hons) at Brighton Polytechnic from 1988-1991 I discovered the endless possibilities of cutting, texturing and dying plastics. It is a perfect material for jewellery as it is light and comfortable to wear.

Using laser cutting, scoring, dying and polishing in bold designs with simple dynamic shapes, my jewellery has a retro yet contemporary aesthetic. All designs are highly finished to give a precious feel. My jewellery can be found in outlets throughout the UK, and in 2014 a collection was sold at Tate Modern with the ‘Matisse Cut Outs’ exhibition. The British Museum sold a collection alongside the exhibition 'The American Dream: Pop to the Present' in Spring 2017.
