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 the 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.
Sara launched her company, Amáli, in the spring of 2006 and has quickly become a favorite among celebrity stylists. Most recently, Amáli Jewelry adorned Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model, and Tori Spelling on the cover of People Magazine. Amáli was selected by a prestigious group of industry leaders as a “ 2008 Rising Stars.”
