Eras by Sarah Mason

December 8, 2023 through March 16, 2024

Lynn Rodeman Metzger Galleries

Eras by Sarah Mason is inspired by the women’s fashion industry, featuring full body works that are influenced by significant time periods in women’s fashion. Mason works to push the limits of body jewelry as she measures, cuts, and bends each link in quantities that approach the hundreds and thousands. Mimicking the textures and styles of the influential pieces, she highlights the modern process of replication and the unique feelings of specific eras. Mason seeks to further explore body adornments by making pieces that are precious and unique while pushing the boundary between everyday jewelry and extraordinary additions to the body.
