Sarah Whitlock, Flying Lobster Jewellery, is a jewellery and object maker, working predominately in sterling silver. Sarah’s work features curvilinear designs, Middle Eastern motifs, and coloured gems. Using traditional jewellery making skills she creates wearables as well as objects such as teapots, treasure boxes, spoons, perfume bottles and music boxes, all made from sterling silver.
Inspired by Middle Eastern art and architecture Sarah is inspired by the materials themselves. She says, “often I will hold a gemstone, look at it, look into it, head off in a seemingly blank stare and see exactly what this rock needs to become.”
