WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
My name is Sarah Jacobs. My father was in the military so I'm not really "from" anywhere. I consider Augusta my home now. I am a Medical Information Systems Analyst.
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
I search high and low for antique and vintage items that I can use to make new jewelry from. I usually repurpose broken jewelry and textiles but I have been known to find uses for toy teacups and fishing lures. I just grab whatever speaks to me whether I know what I'm going to use it for or not.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Nature, books, music, and old movies.
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I love the mountains.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.

WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS?
Don't rush it. Let the materials speak to you and you'll make something beautiful.
