Aline Sar / Hartstring Jewelry

jewelry / gold & silver

Hometown: San Francisco, CA

Aline Sar’s hand-fabricated metal jewelry stretches the boundaries of what jewelry can be. Rather than stick to the form of traditional jewelry, Aline lets each design unfold organically, resulting in the purest form for each piece. Using techniques such as forging, soldering and shaping, Aline produces Hartstring Jewelry bracelets, earrings, necklaces and other accessories that have an airy, whimsical feel. She will often use two different metals when contrast is needed, putting the focus on the design rather than on the stone setting.

With a focus on clean and pure lines that make the subject of each piece clear, Aline makes great use of negative space, allowing the wearer to imply more visually while keeping the design simple. She will even make and draw her own wire if continuity needs call for it. The result is jewelry with perfect alignment that’s great than the sum of its parts, with stones, rings and other flair added for a subtle touch that doesn’t overpower the greater whole. Bring the breeziness of West Coast jewelry home whenever you find Aline at Sugarloaf.
