About

Sara Patino 
Founder

I believe in the power of jewelry. It is wearable sculpture that illustrates the life of the material, the maker, and the wearer, and I hope to be a part of your incredible story. I'm here to make you feel confident in mindfully made jewelry that you bring to life through your spirit and personal style. 

I'm on a journey to bring to you a collection that is rooted in my design philosophy:


Jewelry can be equally beautiful as it is responsible!

• My jewelry is made by hand with 100% recycled gold sourced from a local refinery near my studio.  This refinery, established in 1909, keeps the highest environmental standards and resources. By choosing to access metal locally, I support our local community.

• In addition to sourcing recycled metals, I meticulously collect, reuse and recycle my own scrap metal and other unused materials. In turn, I minimize the environmental impact of our production.

• My designs use traditional metal smithing techniques, each made one by one to avoid the excessive waste associated with most mass moulding and plating production.

• In house handmade production eliminates the pollution that often comes from high volume and machine made jewelry.

• When jewelry is handmade, in small amounts with metals that are locally sourced, it reduces the carbon imprint that massive international import and export and mining leaves on the earth.

• Selecting a piece from Sara Patino Jewelry increases the demand for artisan handcraft job opportunities within my studio.
