Artist of the Week: Sarah Ritter

"I make jewelry in my basement lair of badbitchery."

Presenting our Kindred Artist of the Week series! We are big fans of all the artists we work with and we are so excited to share their stories!

This week’s featured artist is Sarah Ritter, whose work has been a long time local favorite with its endless color and texture and shape surprises. We're hosting her jewelry line (Bronze Betty Finery)'s pop up shop tonight during First Friday; come through to see what's new on her workbench! 4:30-7pm.

Who are you?

Sarah Ritter, lifelong Juneauite.

What do you do?

I make jewelry in my basement lair of badbitchery.

Who/what inspires you?

I love the natural state of materials like gems and leather, and being able to highlight their unique colors and patterns.

What’s your favorite moment in the process?

A eureka moment when a combination of colors or shapes just belongs, and there's no doubt that those earrings are gonna be hot!

What’s a trick of your trade, or a piece of advice for other artists in your medium?

Find your own style and run with it. Don't be afraid to get weird.

What’s next?

Not entirely sure, I tend to fly by the seat of my pants.

See Sarah's work at the store always, and a bigger array of her collection tonight during First Friday!
