After returning to the US, Sarah took courses at Mass Art with Peter Evonuk and worked for Michele Mercado of Michele Mercaldo Jewelry in the South End of Boston. She then took an intensive at North Bennett Street School and began private study with a professor there. She currently designs and creates her own jewelry out of her home studio in the South End of Boston.
