Sara Graham Richardson's jewelry-making journey began in 2005, when she was hired to be an assistant editor for a new magazine called Step by Step Wire Jewelry. Having been hired for her journalism background at the time, she knew almost nothing about jewelry. After being encouraged to take jewelry-making classes to understand how to edit the step-by-step projects, Sara found another creative medium, besides creative writing, in which to express herself.
After a few years at the magazine, she was promoted to associate editor. She kept taking classes at Bead Fest, and discovered she was most proficient in chain maille and some wire techniques. Now, she not only knew how to copy edit the projects, but could also make them herself! In August 2010, she decided to break out on her own, and start Creative World of Sara's Lovestruck Jewelry.
Lovestruck Jewelry can be found on Etsy, and at several craft shows in the Philadelphia suburbs. Sara also provides jewelry-making parties for children and adults, as well as in-home trunk shows. Sara's work has been published in over 20 jewelry-making print and digital publications, including Step by Step Wire Jewelry, Easy Wire, and Creative Jewelry (making the cover in 2008).
Sara, a native of Getzville, New York, a suburb of Buffalo, lives in Chester County, Pennsylvania with her husband Mike, and daughter Michaela.
