Artist: Sarah Moeding
Vug Jewels are designed by Sarah Moeding. After moving to Louisville, KY, in 2013, Sarah marched full bore into creating a jewelry line made exclusively with bone, under the name Dead Things by Sarah. For six years, she created unique, often one of a kind pieces that were increasingly made to incorporate a wide variety of additional materials, including raw and unusual semiprecious stones, vintage and new chains, ethically sourced bone materials, and found objects. In May of 2019, Sarah changed the name to Vug Jewels to reflect the gradual move away from a collection made with bone, to one that employs many materials. Now back once more in Minnesota, Sarah has bought a house in a tiny town in the South Western part of the state, where she lives with her husband, Carter, and their three greyboi kitties, Henry, Igor and Odin.
