Every design process starts with observation.
Whether she is walking down the cobblestone streets of Gastown, sitting in a neighbourhood coffee shop, or travelling on transit, designer Sarah Mülder loves watching people and what they wear daily. It is just the thing that inspires that initial creative spark for designing statement pieces, that she truly feels connected to. When Sarah starts the design process, she likes to head to a favourite corner in a local cafe to let her imagination wander as she draws designs out in her sketchbook.
The strong and harmonious balance of the metals is the key to the durability of the jewelry. SMJ has worked on the plating process meticulously with a small family-owned and operated team in Thailand, proudly supporting their growing business over the past five years. Their skilled team is certificated from Intertek, ensuring fair working conditions and wages for the company’s employees and staff.
Finally, the pieces undergo the stone setting process, SMJ only uses sustainable and easily sourced stones such as rose quartz, onyx, and cultured pearls. Each gem adds a unique meaning to the designs, which is just one of the reasons why the SMJ fan base has connected to Sarah’s evolving collections.
From start to finish, Sarah Mülder is proud to make jewelry for a growing fan base who inspires the designs. There is nothing Sarah loves more than creating pieces that make someone feel powerful and confident in what they are wearing.
