Silk & Steel Creative Director and Founder Sarah Cotterall

In the bustling streets of London, amidst the fashion mecca of the world, Creative Director and Founder Sarah Cotterall's journey to establishing Silk & Steel began.

Growing up in the vibrant city of London, Sarah always had an eye for fashion. However, she found herself frustrated by the lack of options that resonated with her desire for authenticity and originality. The high street was saturated with mass-produced pieces that lacked the soul and character she craved. Determined to carve her own path, Sarah sought to break free from the confines of mainstream fashion.

In her late teens and early twenties, Sarah embraced the mantra of being unique and forging her own identity. While fashion remained important, it was individuality that truly captivated her. She was drawn to the allure of jewellery, seeing it as a means of expressing one's personal style and story.

However, the hefty price tags of luxury designer brands proved to be a barrier for Sarah. Undeterred, she embarked on a quest to find hidden treasures in the form of vintage jewellery. With a keen eye and a creative spirit, Sarah breathed new life into these pieces, transforming them into modern vintage creations that exuded charm and elegance.

Silk & Steel Jewellery Brand

Thus, the seed for Silk & Steel was planted – a brand born out of Sarah's desire for limited edition designer jewellery at accessible prices. Each piece is crafted with love and care, never mass-produced, but instead made in small quantities to ensure exclusivity and quality.
