Sarah Amos was born in Llantwit Major, South Wales in 1949. While in Wales, she studied art at Newport College of Art; studied design and silversmithing at High Wycombe College of Art and taught silversmithing at Bath Technical College. In 1973, Amos moved to New York, where she studied ancient techniques of goldsmithing at Kulicke-Stark Academy of Jewelry and for 10 years taught goldsmithing at the school, which is now called Jewelry Art Institute. During her time in New York, Amos designed and made jewelry for an antiquities gallery and made jewelry models for Metropolitan Museum of Art. Today, she lives in Charleston, South Carolina and designs one of a kind, handcrafted 22 Karat gold jewelry. She uses ancient coins, precious and semi precious stones to create her wearable contemporary art pieces. All work is made by hand.
