Katie Guagenti's Profile
Poor Sparrow is a Columbus-born jewelry line that was started by Katie Guagenti in 2009. Katie designs and constructs each piece using a mix of vintage and modern materials. She uses vintage chains and old brass elements, antique parts and new raw gemstones to create pieces that have a vintage-meets-modern look. She also rescues vintage dead stock jewelry so it can be worn and enjoyed again.
Katie has a degree in fashion design from Ohio State University. She currently resides in the Italian Village area of Columbus, where she draws inspiration from the uneven brick streets, bygone bread-making industry, and inviting church steeples. She loves to go antique shopping, work in her garden and can also be found with her very large family – she is the youngest of seven siblings!
