Sarah West is an artist living and working in Raleigh.Sarah West creates jewelry inspired by the magic of geometry and the architectural lattice work of bridges and electric towers. Using the beauty and strength of steel, Sarah creates three dimensional forms that express the resilience of the human spirit. Like the power lines that intersect the horizon, Sarah pieces are architectural landscapes that interact with body and space.
