Sara Progressi

Born in August 1982, she studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera following a three-year course in “Art design for business”, and then specialised in Product Design.
In 2006 she took the New Jewellery course held by the sculptor Davide De Paoli, at the UrOburo Studio.
She then perfected the jewellery making skills she learned at the Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana and took part in workshops organised by Margareta Niel.
In 2009 she participated in the AGC exhibition “Il bijou nel tempo e la ricerca orafa contemporanea”, after taking part in the workshop held by Maria Rosa Franzin and Graziano Visintin; in 2011 she took part in the AGC workshop held by David Loepp.
She also undertook internships with various jewellery studios and jewellery designers.

She took part in the Ceramics biennial in 2006 in Albisola, reinterpreting the local tradition with a project to create a double candlestick.
Together with Simona Solari, in 2006 she won the first edition of the Sara Young Designer Award competition in the everyday items category. In 2011 she presented her “Pallino” brooch in gold, granulated silver, nylon and pearl at the ON OFF centre in Padua.

She exhibited a bronze and silk necklace she designed at “Filo rosso 2013” at the Manzioli Palace art gallery and Taktil Gallery of Contemporary Jewels in Izola, Slovenia.

From 12 to 29 May 2013 she took part in the international designer jewellery exhibition “Gioielli in… fermento” with a ring on the theme of the sense of taste. The exhibition was promoted by AGC at the Vigna delle arti Torre Fornello, Fornello di Ziano Piacentino.

While she is the youngest member of the UrOburo collective, she shows tremendous creative energy and technical skill.

She boldly experiments with materials, readily takes on new challenges and is now trying her hand at making custom-made pieces.

She creatively combines unusual “poor” metals with precious metals in line with the client’s requests: the work she has produced ranges from reconstructing a 19th century earring to making a set of sapphire and diamond jewellery.

When the project to allow clients to create their own wedding rings with the help of a jeweller was conceived, she was the natural first choice to make it a success.

In the summer of 2012 she took part in a collective project that compared the metal jewellery created by UrOburo with the work of artists who make jewellery using other materials: the result was the “I sentieri” exhibition that took place at the Fonderia Napoleonica Eugenia in Via Thaon di Revel, 21 in Milan from 26 November to 2 December 2012.
