Inspired while backpacking through South America, Sara Freedenfeld learned to combine natural elements with knotted strings in order to create intricate forms of wearable art. Her passion blossomed after she met an artist in Venezuela who taught her how to link and mold metal. Launched in 2006, Freedenfeld’s line of jewelry, Amali, clearly portrays the South American influence of vibrant textiles and naturally colorful landscapes, and is highly distinguishable by its rich textures and elegant movement. Each piece is handcrafted from 18K yellow gold chains and a combination of precious and semi-precious gemstones, all in Freedenfeld’s New York studio. Amali deeply reflects the artist’s complex aesthetic vision and a strong connection to everything she designs.
