About the Designer

Amáli Designer, Sara Freedenfeld, discovered her passion for making jewelry while backpacking through South America. In Valparaiso, Chile she learned to combine natural elements with knotted strings to form intricate wearable art. In Venezuela she met an artist who taught her how to link and mold metal. Drawing inspiration from the natural landscapes and vibrant textiles that colored her travels, Sara set out to create a line of jewelry that delicately unites the natural simplicity of handcrafted artistry with the sophistication and glamour of high fashion. Aside from the small gifts of knowledge she was given during her travels, which continue to influence her work today, Sara is largely a self-taught artist. She is often inspired by textiles, and many of her pieces have a fabric-like sensibility, created by intricately weaving chains and stones to create rich textures. After deciding to establish her own company, Sara chose to name it Amáli after her 100 year old grandmother - a bold, confident woman who rides around on a scooter sporting a Ferrari sticker. She embodies the spirit of the brand and all of the women who appreciate beautiful jewelry, but are not defined by it.
