For 4 decades — first at the Cellar Workshop on Main Street, then on Railroad Place by the train station — Sarah Kennedy designed and sold rings, bracelets, pendants, pins and more.
Four years ago, the 1960 Staples High School grad moved to Tucson. Her many customers and clients — really, they should be called friends — were sorry to see her go.
Among them was a Westport woman who — over a lifetime with her husband here — had collected numerous hand-crafted pieces.
Most were semi-precious stones, in hammered gold or silver settings. Sarah also designed, reset and repurposed stones from simpler pieces for the couple.
When Sarah announced her Arizona move, the woman — whose husband had died — had a final set of earrings and matching pendant made.
Nearly all of that jewelry was lost recently, in a burglary.
The woman wants to reach Sarah, to see if she has descriptive information that could aid in its recovery. She has tried to find contact information, but to no avail.
She’s not the only Westporter who hopes to find Sarah. Others have asked me too.
I don’t know where Sarah is now. But perhaps an alert “06880” reader does. If so, please click “Comments” below.
