Designer Sara Freedenfeld discovered her passion for making jewelry while backpacking through South America. In Valparaiso, Chile she learned to combine natural elements with knotted strings to form intricate wearable art. In Venezuela she met an artist who taught her how to link and mold metal.

Drawing inspiration from the natural landscapes and vibrant textiles that colored her travels, Sara set out to create a line of jewelry that delicately unites the natural simplicity of handcrafted artistry with the sophistication and glamour of high fashion.

Sara launched her company, Amáli, in the spring of 2006 and has quickly become a favorite among celebrity stylists. Amáli has graced the pages of major fashion magazines and adorned such celebrities as Tori Spelling on the cover of People magazine, Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model, and most recently, the leading ladies of Gossip Girl.
