Sarah Hood Jewelry
Seattle WA 98101
Sarah Hood sees jewelry making as a way to explore her somewhat disparate interests in a very direct and inclusive way. Her enthusiasm for gardening, botany, literature, children's toys, eastern philosophy, and travel all somehow make their way into her jewelry. Often these subjects inspire tangents in her work that she finds totally compelling, and she finds the small scale of jewelry perfect for exploring a concept to the point of exhaustion. Collecting, organizing, studying, venerating, and obsessing all come together for her in these small sculptures. There is no material that is too mundane.
So much of Tibetan iconography is based on natural forms, and perhaps it just makes sense that these are the archetypes Sarah Hood finds most familiar. Her work has explored many Buddhist concepts over the years, from the ideas of impermanence and transience to the concept of the preciousness and sacredness of the everyday. Still, she creates pieces that are accessible to a wide audience, and hopes the forms and materials she uses will appeal to people on many different levels.
