"Jewelry is about self-expression. It should help you feel like your most authentic self. That's why I make jewelry. It's a small reminder to celebrate the things that make you, YOU!"
This is Sara Gallo.
In 2008, Sara Gallo began selling her jewelry under the name Sara Gallo Jewelry. It was at this time that she enrolled in fine art metals courses and pursued two undergraduate degrees (BFA with a concentration in Fine Art Metals & BSE in Art Education). Upon graduating, she gained experience teaching high school art classes and also exhibited in the prestigious Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. Her Barbie Shoe Jewelry collection caught the eyes of movers and shakers; celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg and Anna dello Russo. After appearing on The View and in the pages of Vogue Magazine, Sara's jewelry has become known as fun fashion that makes a serious statement.
Sara combines traditional metalsmithing techniques, like lost wax casting, with new technologies, such as 3D printing. Her vision is to make jewelry that helps us stay positive and happy, which is inspired by people doing just that, from all walks of life. As a feminist, she is inspired to create jewelry that connects us in ways that are not always so obvious. She chooses subject matter to work with that has resonated with her in a significant way and she hopes this will inspire you in your daily life.
The Sara Gallo Jewelry brand is committed to using socially conscious and environmentally friendly materials. Fine jewelry offered in the shop is made using 100% recycled sterling silver, lab created gemstones, and natural gemstones sourced from certified suppliers of conflict-free gemstones.
Sara recently earned her MFA in Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM from Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Her studio is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her work can be found in galleries, boutiques, and stores in Tokyo, Montreal, Los Angeles, NYC, Chicago, and the Bahamas. To learn more, visit our BLOG!
