ABOUT

THE DESIGNER

When I finished my semester, I left to go backpacking trip through South America.  To keep our expenses low, my friend and I made jewelry to trade for a bus ride or a night in a hotel.  To this day, the most amazing meal I’ve ever had was on a beach in Northern Chile.  We caught our own fish and traded a necklace for a handful of tomatoes and onions.   We cut open an old tin can we found in the dunes and spread it open to use as a pan to sauté our catch.  The fish was gritty with sand but I was happy as a peach knowing that all I had to do was make something with my own hands and I could feed myself.

When you get all your money stolen while in South America, you’d never think that it would lead to an amazing career in jewelry design, but that’s just what happened to Sara Freedenfeld. Finding herself without funds, she learned to macrame wearable art and sold her goods on the street each day. Clearly…she had talent! Soon thereafter she met a metal artist in Venezuela who taught her the basics in metalwork, and hence her life in jewelry was launched.
