Sarah Henderson is a 25 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 & 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 & sell copper jewelry throughout high school and college. After completing an Associates of the Arts degree & doing some traveling, she has decided to focus on making her jewelry & selling it in gift shops & art galleries. Copper Creations jewelry is made from repurposed electrical wire. The wire is stripped of its insulation with a knife or wire strippers & then straightened & 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) & will not irritate sensitive skin.
