Sarah Bober graduated from St. Olaf College with a major in Fine Arts. She began making jewelry in 2007, and has been selling her work at art shows ever since. She specializes in Art Clay, a clay form of silver, and resin designs. She incorporates many recycled elements into her pieces, which include scrabble tile pendants and domino magnets. All of her jewelry is designed and created in her studio in St. Paul, MN.
In addition to making jewelry, Sarah enjoys teaching classes. She is a Level One certified Art Clay instructor and has taught classes in a variety of metal clay techniques. In addition to the Bead&Button Show, she has taught classes at the Bead Monkey, the Studio at Rush Creek, and lead demonstrations at the American Craft Council Show in St. Paul.
About Sarah and her process:
"I have always been a creative person, but it is only recently that I have begun to think of myself as an artist. I find designing unique pieces challenging and rewarding. Every piece is made with the utmost care and attention to detail. I'm a perfectionist by nature, and I like to take time with each design to make sure it is as "artistically perfect" as possible. As much as I love creating, I would feel like something was missing if I could not teach. I am a teacher by trade, and have been doing some form of instruction for most of my life. I am truly passionate about helping others learn new techniques. There is nothing better than a successful class with students who feel confident and excited about what they have accomplished."
