With an award winning approach to design and the experience to develop creative, commercial collections, Founding Creative Director, Sarah Raffel's sole mission is to continue to blend design and originality.
In 2003 Sarah graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in Jewellery and Silversmithing. During which time she won several awards for design and in her final year was awarded the Deutsche Bank Pyramid Award for Design and Business. As a result Sarah decided to side step industry or retail experience in favour of establishing and developing her business model, Brazen Studios. In the process of starting-up and undergoing initial business-training Sarah secured one of the first NESTA (National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts) Pioneer Awards to help her establish Brazen Studios.
Since starting up, Brazen has attracted the attention from the likes of American and Italian Vogue, MTV and has developed celebratory silverware and awards for companies alongside their exploratory and highly original bespoke commission service. It may be an engagement ring or a remodel of an heirloom piece, the result it always customer focused and will always remain a one-off item for that client.
