about

I have been making jewellery seriously for the past four years, working exclusively in precious and semi-precious gemstones, freshwater pearls and sterling silver.  My designs are all one-of-a-kind pieces providing a wearable piece of luxury.  The stones are my inspiration and I work with them in the same way a fine artist works with oil paint, selecting colours to harmonise or contrast, textures that may be smooth or faceted, shapes varying from the jagged shapes of chips to the seductive curves of smooth polished rondelles.  Apatite, aquamarine, adventurine, amethyst, angelite, agate, ametrine – even the names are gorgeous (and that’s just a few of the As).

I live beside the sea in Cornwall in a 250 year old Wesleyan chapel we converted. If you would like to get in touch, please contact me on sarah@sarahdelarrinaga.co.uk

PS My surname is Basque in origin and rhymes with lime-and-lager. Not very romantic, but accurate!
