How wonderous a life may be.

‘She pulled up her sails + set adrift on her tiny boat, not really knowing of where this whimsical journey would take her. Through the darkest of nights + across the great wild oceans she travelled, until her tiny wooden bow happened upon land...a land of magnificent trees, princely mountains and freshly iced winters. And so it was here, that she decided to pitch her little home + heart.'

Hello ... i’m Jemima + welcome to the wonderful world of Sparky Jones Accessories!

Interestingly enough this journey to a different land + life, inevitably lead to finding ones true passion in life! You see, to keep sane whilst going through that horrid immigration process, i armed myself with a $20 vintage sewing machine + a few scraps of fabric (which is all i could afford!) + put my mind to building an empire!

For years i happily honed my craft :: learning + designing, wanting to create all those things that i couldn’t find for myself – a classy hat to hide my unruly hair, a handbag that would stand out in the crowd + lil splashes of accessories that would make my day more colourfully wonderful.
Infact I’m greatly driven by colour + texture ~ so i combined that with my love of fabric , all things vintage + Scandinavian design ... to create a world that is vividly abundant in life. Every piece has been handcrafted by moi using the most top notch vintage, preloved and natural/organic fabrics, which in the end allows for a story + their innate character to shine through in each one created.

The other thing that provided me with much inspiration, was my Granny Jean. Sparky... to say the least, intelligent to the brim + an unconventional woman before her time. She always believed in being sensible with what you have, yet do what you love, with her most favourite saying in the world being::

‘we were never rich, but we were richer than most!’ ~ which to me always meant, having less is loving more ~ she was one smart cookie!

So here at SJA we (my beau + i) have integrated her saying into our businessing practices
We make small batches of characters, using deliciously superior fabrics....so we can only offer a long lasting quality accessory that can be lovingly cherished for years to come – yes’m, just like they did in the yester years .

So whilst you are here, peruse the shelves, as there are so many unique characters to meet in our quaint lil boutique......but any which way....i’m just glad you happened to stop by!
Au revoir my friend.
Jemima, aka Sparky Jones
