About Southeast Sparrow

If there is something you love doing, you would probably want to share it with a friend or with the world.
Southeast Sparrow is that something for me.
About Southeast Sparrow - Savannah
Hi, my name is Savannah and I'm a wife and mother of 3. I'm the sole jewelry maker here at this little online shop. Southeast Sparrow is born out of my love of jewelry making. I visited a bead and jewelry supply store 5 years ago and kept making little arm candy trinkets ever since. I work out of my shop aka my home here in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Beaded Kumihimo
My hobby of custom making jewelry was created because I was looking for something more personal to wear than generic mall style accessories. I started dabbling with wooden beads, pearls and gemstones. I created pieces for myself. My favourite kind of pieces I've made in the past are seed string bracelets, gemstone stretch bracelets, and birds nest necklaces. At this time, I've been immersed in creating seed bead braided bracelets using a technique called Kumihimo. Kumihimo is a Japanese art of braiding. Coincidentally, the seed beads I love to use are Japanese as well! I love the ability to be able to design patterns with various different colours with this technique. 
Unusual materials intrigue me and I am always looking for ways to integrate them in a design by continuing to expand my skills in jewelry making. I believe no matter how old you are, you should never stop learning. The world is so vast and diverse. There is so much to feel, see, experience and learn from. But I learned that to be able to grow and really absorb it all, one must set a receptive mindset. That mindset is from a place of humility, wanting to listen and ready to be taught.
------------------
As I embark on a journey of sharing my pieces to the world, I look forward to listen to more people than my family circle. I want to know your wants, desires, your style, your colours. This will be the groundwork I dream Southeast Sparrow to be on. To have intricate design for your style, for your life.
