originally from the east coast, sarah greenberg’s life has long been immersed in the arts, but it was a metalsmithing class where she found her calling. she soon moved to san francisco to pursue her study and passion for jewelry making. after working for a number of renowned designers, including sarah graham, she launched her own business in 2008. her first studio was located in oakland, but she and her husband (who is also her operations manager) recently moved to marin and opened the doors to the new showroom and workspace.

inspired by the history of jewelry and elements found in nature (like fishbones, weathered sticks, mountains, waterfalls, flotsam and jetsam), sarah and her small team design hand-hewn pieces using age-old techniques. the precious metals collection includes earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces and bridal rings. i adore her style—every piece is elegant yet edgy, while organic and modern at the same time. the same can be said about the design of her space. in addition to her own line, sarah also features the work of other jewelry designers, artists and makers.

  1. I went to her store in Sausalito looking for wedding bands. I still regret not having gotten one that time, everything there was beautiful and I can’t wait to go back and get something this time!
