Hi! I'm Lisa Quinn, owner, designer, and creator at Sagely Sparrow. I'm a mother of two adorable littles, William and Evelyn, and a wife to a pretty spectacular husband, J.P. I converted to Catholicism in 2014, with the help of J.P., who was my sponsor. I began making jewelry as an undergraduate student at Texas A&M University. I moved to Denton in 2012 to pursue a graduate degree in School Psychology. That's where I met J.P., became Catholic, eventually got married and had a baby. I've been selling my jewelry since 2011 but during and after my conversion, I began making more and more Catholic-centered items. In 2016, Sagely Sparrow was born as a way for me to focus on faith based jewelry and gifts.
The name Sagely Sparrow is inspired by my favorite Bible verses, from Matthew 10, "Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s knowledge. So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." During my conversion, I found inspiration in the lives of the Saints. Now, these Saints play a central role in Sagely Sparrow. My Saint medal jewelry is intended to tell a part of a Saint's story and are popular with my customers as gifts for Confirmation, First Communion, and many other life events. I also use Saint quotes in many of my apparel items.
My new passion has been working with metal clay, which allows me to create the beautiful copper, bronze, and silver jewelry I offer. To accomplish these pieces I use a variety or molds, textures, and stencils that I have collected over the years, as well as make my own stamps.
This store is the story of the most important things in my life - my faith and family - told through the stories of the Saints. I hope you enjoy what you see and that my items inspire you to remember the virtues and teachings of the Saints in your life!
