Throughout history, jewelry has been one of the most fascinating forms of art, used not only to decorate people’s bodies, but to capture moments of history and timeless beauty, and preserve them forever.   

Sarah Priny Newby...was born and raised in beautiful Thailand, a land where the magic, glory and mystic of the past meets with the vibrant modernity of the present. Her passion for jewelry started at the age of 6, when she used to collect stones and make her own necklaces. Thailand has for centuries been the epicenter of design and making fine jewelry, Sarah was lucky to have grown up with several master artisans of jewelry in her life.  

At the age of 12, Sarah went to a summer school, where she first started learning how to make jewelry. She made her first piece of precious jewelry by the time she went to college at 16, whilst completing her B.A. in Political Science. Post graduation, and her Masters of Education in Educational Administration Program.........During this time until present Sarah has made jewelry as it has always been her passion, she voraciously extracted jewelry making secrets from the masters of the craft whenever she had the chance. Sarah was always sure to be enrolled in some jewelry making course or another during teenage and young adult life. Her passion for jewelry endeavored her to pursue the study of the ancient handmade jewelry techniques, as well as the modern computer assisted design methods . Along her journey of skill and knowledge with her passion, she has become adept in many facets of jewelry making, from gemology, to 3d CAD design (Matrix), to casting and setting.
