Exclusively Designed Accessories to Adorn Your Body and Home
I create handcrafted, heirloom quality, sculptural statement pieces for passionate, confident people who treasure original, collectable accessories for their body and home accentuating their own personal style.
My aesthetic emerges from the metal through line, form, repeated elements, texture and color, implementing a meditative, rhythmic approach using the hand-hammering processes of forging, chasing, sinking, raising, repouse’, shell-forming and/or the lost wax casting process or hand-building. By applying the flame of the torch, chemical solutions and/or pigments on my copper pieces, I intensify the depth of color, while texture, patina and various polishing techniques interplay with reflective qualities on my jewelry pieces to achieve the desired outcome.
Can a piece of Jewelry, an architectural In-relief Wall Tile
truly reflect Your personal design sensibility? ... Yes, it can!
As a jeweler, designer, metalsmith, I love creating pieces that are meaningful and unique to YOU and become part of your personal story while providing quality craftsmanship and style.
Join me in my studio to collaboratively design and make an original heirloom quality piece of jewelry, original hand-hammered in-relief architectural wall tile, vessel or sculpture to fit your space and accentuate your design sensibility.
I have been a jeweler, designer, metalsmith for 26 years. In 2009, my family and I made a big move from our beloved downtown victorian home to a modern mountainside homestead in Roanoke County where I renovated a two-stall barn into my metals studio. After a ‘homesteading reality' sabbatical, creating a few commission pieces along the way, I re-inaugurated Sarah EK Muse at Studio 12 in November, 2015. Since then, I have been producing new works for individual and corporate clients, galleries and designers. My work has been featured in various publications and exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the eastern United States. I am the founding member of the Southwestern Virginia Metal Arts Guild and on the board of, and a juried artisan member of the Artisans Center of Virginia. I host seasonal workshops (fundraisers), teach metalsmithing classes upon request, and love having folks visit me in my studio. I would love to hear from you.
