Born in 1946 as Sara Jocelyn Margarita Elissa Burton, she belongs to a generation of graduates of art schools of the 1960s, who were fascinated by the possibilities of organic materials. In particular, stained wood, corals, tree bark, etc. “I was overwhelmed by the desire to twist and bend, but at some point I was drawn to creating simple, more massive forms,” she says.
“When I stopped painting and went into the art of jewelry, she says, I had a feeling that no one had done anything like that. Indeed, her current works are original, at least not like everything else, some of her ideas seem so natural, that you wonder how it never occurred to anyone before to do the same thing.
