Sara Freedenfeld, founder of the Amáli brand, discovered her passion for making jewelry while backpacking through South America. While traveling in Valparaiso, Chile she learned to combine natural elements with knotted strings to form intricate wearable art. While in Venezuela she met an artist who taught her how to link and mold metal, cultivating her interest in making jewelry with precious metals.
Inspired by natural landscapes and vibrant textiles witnessed during her travels, Sara set out to create jewelry that delicately unites the natural simplicity of handcrafted artistry with glamour and sophistication.
In the spring of 2006 Sara launched her company, Amáli. Amáli has quickly become a favorite among celebrity stylists and has graced the pages of major fashion magazines. Her works have been featured by Tori Spelling on the cover of People magazine, Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model, and the leading ladies of Gossip Girl.
