Unique supplies for unique makers
When this shop was known as Sparrow Salvage, I sold one of a kind jewelry made from vintage, antique and artisan made beads. As someone offering work that was truly unique, I knew that my supplies had to be an individual by their own merit; after all, how special can earrings be if they’re made with the kind of beads you find everywhere?
I no longer make jewelry full-time (it’s a long story!) and now in preparation to move to the UK, I have re-named my shop Sparrow Salvage Studio and turned it into a supply shop where I offer my many years of hoarded objects. offered on their own or in 'soups' and kits, it's my aim to provide you with the most unique and inspiring supplies for your one of a kind work.
There is an endless variety here: vintage and antique beads, buttons and lace, hand-dyed textiles and components made from scratch or altered. Found objects - tiny things found at the bottom of sewing boxes and my walks around my rural home town. Antique papers, book covers, sheets of old cake tins, rusty wire, vintage photos... the list goes on, but why read about it? Explore my shop and discover what lights the flame of your muse.
You can follow me on Instagram for updates and behind the scenes (link is below). I also have a blog where I once journalled my jewelry-making days, now it is sporadic but talks mostly of my changing creativity drives and the business of handmade business.
