Sara Freedenfeld’s jewelry design philosophy is centered on the importance of feeling deeply connected to everything she does. She enjoys the challenge of creating complex designs and gets lost for hours trying to navigate a new design from vision to completion. "My intention is to delicately unite the natural simplicity of handcrafted artistry with the sophistication and glamour of high fashion."
Each piece is created by hand in Freedenfeld’s Armali Jewelry studio using mechanical connections to combine 18-karat gold chains and precious and semi-precious gemstones. Her designs are distinguishable by the intricately woven highly reflective chain used to create rich textures with plenty of movement.
Sara’s passion for the art of jewelry making was fueled by a backpacking trip through South America where she had firsthand experience in how jewelry is crafted by artisans. In the Andes Mountains of Chile, she learned to combine natural elements with knotted strings to form wearable art. In Venezuela, she met an artist who taught her how to link and mold metal. Drawing inspiration from the natural landscapes and vibrant textiles that colored her travels, Sara set out to create a line of jewelry that reflects her complex aesthetic vision.
