Sarah Tector from S. Tector metals
Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
My aesthetic when designing over the years is to approach jewelry as small scale sculpture. As a result they catch the eye when on the body or not. I create clean, geometric, and architecturally influenced pieces in sterling silver, cast bronze, powder coating, and other mixed materials. These are mainly one-of-a-kind, limited edition, and production pieces of jewelry and most recently collaborations and installations, allowing me to push myself out of my creative comfort zone and the opportunity and challenge of artistic evolution.
What is your favorite way to put yourself in the mood for creativity?:
Having a home studio really helps! Whenever I’m in the mood to design and make I have everything I need in the next room. Once there I like to keep myself motivated with a great playlist of podcasts and music. PS…Everything She Wants, best 80s song ever : )
How did you come up with your business name?:
S. Tector is how I have signed my custom work for years. I chose to add Metals to finish off the name since my work goes beyond jewelry, but encompasses many forms and types of metal.
What advice would you give to an artist just starting out and/or what is the best advice you have received for your art & business?:
Pick something that makes you happy. Make things that you want to look at, live with, and wear.
