BIO

Sarah Jane Sindler uses 'KING RELD' as her umbrella pseudonym to encapsulate her brand of wearable design, performance, and installation art. Sindler is interested in natural aesthetics and biomimicry and also keeps a keen eye on technological and high-end materials. She explores how fashion affects our self image through beauty gluttony, cravings of luxury, and the over-exaggeration of our features. To present and display her work, Sindler likes to carefully curate meaningful experiential exhibits enhanced by performance and installation, and, often, with collaborative works of other artists and designers.

She graduated with a Bachelors in Visual/Studio Arts and Environmental Creative Writing from Chatham University in Pittsburgh, PA. She has been studying under master jeweler Ira Helfer of David I. Helfer Jewelers in the Clark Building in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh while also managing the KING RELD business. Sindler has been exhibited by the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Society of North American Goldsmiths among others (see below).
