Hand-Carved Jewelry By UK Based Artist Sarah Vigars

Sarah Vigars is a woodcarver and a wildlife artist based near Totnes, Devon, UK. For over 10 years Sarah worked as a prop maker, set designer, puppet maker, and puppeteer in the field of theater. She began to learn wood-carving while she was still working as children’s puppetry company Puppetcraft under John Roberts. In 2016, Sarah founded her own puppet theatre company and called it 'Wild Toy Theatre'. 

In 2018, she took a break from theatre and started to make beautiful things, inspired by animals, plants, and birds in their natural habitats. She makes stunning brooches and necklaces influenced by the mythology, folklore and traditional tales of the British Isles and Europe. 

Her pieces are individually hand-carved from seasoned lime wood and hand painted with eco-friendly water-based wood dyes. The bio-degradable materials and natural sealants give such rich color and smoothness to her jewelry.

Besides her own designs she is happy to take on any commissions, so if you have something in mind that you would want her to make for you then she will love to hear from you.
