Made in Portland, Oregon
An east coast native Sara Barner briefly studied architecture before moving to New York City to study jewelry and metalsmithing at Parsons School of Design. In 2007 Barner moved to Portland, OR where she established the Sara Barner collection. The aesthetic is relies on elegant proportions balancing clean, minimal design with exquisite materials. Each design is thoughtfully created with great attention to details and wearability. These "simple, bold shapes" as designer and creator Barner calls them, are all handmade with deep-hued, veg-tanned English Bridle leather elevating a use-everyday accessory into something that is enduring, coveted and classic. The entire collection is designed and hand made in Barner’s studio in Portland, OR.
