Page Sargisson grew up working in her grandfather’s woodworking studio and learned to carve, sand and make dovetail joints with him. After graduating from Brown, Page took a wax carving class that brought her back to her childhood passion of creating and carving - only this time, she was working with gold. Fifteen years later, Page 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 studio is based in Brooklyn, NY, and her pieces are all handmade 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 likes to “collect” her pieces. In a world where so much is mass-produced and 3D printed, the "brushstrokes" of her carvings allow the customer to connect to the artist and imagine the work that went into creating each piece.
