Sarah Henderson is a 26 year old artist,
born and raised in the suburbs of Seattle, Washington. She has been working
with wire since fourth grade, originally
making faces inspired by Alexander Calder's
work. While experimenting with various
materials and making different kinds of
crafts to sell at holiday bazaars throughout
her junior high school years, she discovered repurposed electrical wire, which is now the
only material she uses.
Sarah continued to make and sell copper
jewelry throughout high school and college.
After completing an Associates of the Arts
degree and doing some traveling, she has
decided to focus on making her jewelry and
selling it in gift shops and art galleries
About the Art
Copper Creations jewelry is made from repurposed electrical wire. The wire is stripped of its insulation with a knife or wire strippers and then straightened and polished with steel wool. After the wires are formed into shapes using round-nose pliers, they are coated with a clear finish to prevent tarnishing. The earwires are 100% sterling silver (not silver-plated), and will not irritate sensitive skin.
