Sarah Cavender designs and produces several new seasonal collections each year.  She specializes in metal mesh jewelry, belts and handbags.  Each piece is hand-made to order by local artisans under Sarah's supervision in Oxford, Alabama, using materials made primarily in the USA with stones imported from Europe.
Sarah discovered the beauty and versatility of bronze screening and other wire materials while studying at the Philadelphia College of Art where she majored in sculpture.  After graduating in 1984, she remained in Philadelphia and applied her skills and understanding of metal to develop a process of forming these materials into wonderful floral, leaf and insect representations as well as abstract form. Sarah looks to her extensive world travel experiences for inspiration.  Her knowledge of art history and design influence her varied design approach.  Constantly in search of uncommon and unique materials, Sarah Cavender maintains a design criteria in which each piece contains an element of woven wire.  In this philosophy she continues to consistently produce a line of jewelry, belts, and handbags that are truly beautiful to wear and admire as objects of art.
Over the years, Sarah Cavender's extensive line has repeatedly been featured in trade publications and top fashion magazines such as Vogue,MademoiselleIn-StyleGlamour, McCalls, and Lucky in the United States and abroad.
