Sarah Holden | Trunk Show

Sarah Holden makes sculpture and jewelry that confront and attempt to reverse ideas about traditional gender roles and expectations.  Using material to address gender, Sarah ruffles steel to render it curvy and lace like while stretching nylon stockings, allowing them to be the structural muscle that hold her sculpture and one-of-a-kind jewelry together.  Sarah's limited production jewelry employs the same metal "ruffles" as in her sculpture and one-of-a-kind jewelry work.  The metal ruffles are sometimes in steel and sometimes in sterling silver, but always refer back the ideas expressed in her sculpture and jewelry.
