Sarah McGuire

Sarah McGuire Jewelry Artist

Chicago-based Sarah McGuire's subtle jewelry rewards scrutiny without clamoring for attention. She draws inspiration from the natural forms she found during childhood summers spent combing New England beaches, the classic modernist design she studied at New York's Parsons School of Design and manmade curiosities that strike her fancy. Her organic, sculptural pieces hand-forged in sterling silver and high-karat gold epitomize timeless style.
