Sarah Bourke specialises in creating unique, handmade jewellery combining sterling silver with Australian and exotic hardwoods.
At home in the far south coast of New South Wales, Sarah is surrounded by the beautiful Australian bush and beach, and her work reflects a multitude of forms from these natural environments. Her ‘Mimosa’ range for example is inspired by a local national park and its pebble rock formations, while her spring ‘Blossom’ earrings draw on the form of a flower bud.
Hand-forming hardwoods, forming and dome punching silver, hollow forming, soldering and rivets, wax calving and other techniques are used by Sarah in her practice.
Sarah has an Associate Diploma in Jewellery and Object Design from Design Centre Enmore (Sydney TAFE), and she has exhibited her work in Sydney and Melbourne in Australia, as well as in London, Glasgow and Edinburgh in the United Kingdom.
