About the Designer
Ever curious about the world around her, Page Sargisson seeks out objects whose texture, shape and history inspire her. With her ability to see beauty where others might not, Page repurposes and transforms these found objects into uniquely textured, handcrafted jewelry, and in doing so, helps bring out the artist in those who wear these special creations.
Page grew up working in her grandfather’s woodworking studio and learned to carve, sand and make dovetail joints with him – after graduating from Brown and working a corporate job, she took a wax carving class that brought her back to my childhood passion of creating and carving. Fifteen years later, she sells at small boutiques around the US, and Barney’s, Ron Herman and Isetan in Japan. She designs jewelry for people like her, jewelry that can transition from dropping off the kids at school in the morning to work and dinner out at night.
Page's pieces are all handmade here in NYC using recycled metals. Her work has a distinct look since she transfers textures from old letterpress blocks, textiles and woodblocks – this seems to attract a clientele who like to “collect” her pieces.
In a world where so much is mass produced and 3D printed, the "brushstrokes" of her carvings allow the end customer to connect to the artist and imagine the work that went into creating each piece.
Ethical Jewelry Making
Page Sargisson Jewelry proudly sources all materials with the environment in mind - in fact, most of our pieces are inspired by found objects.
We are aware of the long and dirty process involved in gold mining. That's why we only use environmentally responsible precious metals, including recycled and refined gold and silver for all of our handmade pieces. Our recycled precious metals originate from renewed sources derived from jewelry or industrial products. In addition, whenever possible we purchase recycled metal for our chain - sadly we can not guarantee all our chain is 100% recycled as we are not manufacturing it ourselves.
Page Sargisson uses conflict free diamonds and can also use antique diamonds mined and cut over 100 years ago. We are in compliance with resolutions set forth by the UN and the Kimberly Process certification scheme. The Kimberley Process is a joint initiative of governments and industry to stem the flow of conflict diamonds, which are rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance wars against legitimate governments.
We are happy to provide GIA certificates for engagement rings, if desired.
