About SagaHus

Sales 227
On Etsy since 2015

Saga Hus embodies the idea that everything has a story.

The story of Saga Hus begins long before I began making jewelry in 2005.

I have been a maker all my life. Drawing, stitchery, sewing, knitting and crochet are some of the many arts and crafts I have tried my hand at. Sometimes the outcome has been wonderful, and sometimes failure. But all of the successes and failures have added to my view as an artist.

I have a background in Interior Design and special interest in Historic Preservation. Some of my most profound views are influenced by prominent architects, designers and artists. Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, William Morris, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keefe; as well as writers, and world leaders like Emily Dickinson, Maya Angelou, Martin Luther King Jr., and Nelson Mandela. All of these people influence my world view which in turn influences my artistic interpretation and style.

Because of my interest in history and my thirty plus years of genealogical (family history) research, I look at life as telling a story. Each scrap of paper has a history, it may not be historically significant, but it does tell us something. Each stone you find on the ground has a story to tell, as well as each person you meet. These thoughts shape my view of life and my designs.

I start my design process usually with an idea for the story of the piece I am making. Sometimes ideas come to me through a focal bead, artwork, story, or photograph. At other times I have been influenced by dreams, news accounts, vacations, and even the weather.

Saga Hus means to me, literally, story house. I believe my designs tell a story of their conceptualization as well as creation. My hope is to bring those designs to people who will see them as capturing a special story. And perhaps adding to the story with their own personal experiences.

    I live in southern Minnesota where I create unique jewelry in my home studio with the assistance of a gang of furry helpers! Saga Hus embodies the idea everything has it's own story. My job as designer is to interpret that story. Thanks for visiting

Additional policies and FAQs
Handmade Art Jewelry is very unique and special. I design my pieces to be worn and enjoyed. However they need to be treated with care. My jewelry designs should not be slept in, worn while working out or while swimming. Many of the components and beads I use in my designs are handmade. This means that they should be treated with care. If you have any questions on how to care for your purchase please contact me. I want you to be able to enjoy my pieces for a long time.

I am always happy to know a little more about where my special pieces are going. The story starts with me, but it continues with you.
