Hi, I’m Lisa Quinn, owner, designer, and maker at Sagely Sparrow. Here are some things I’d like you to know about me:

I’ve been making jewelry for a while.

I began making jewelry when in college and started my first brand on Etsy in 2011. My first brand was a southern lifestyle brand, but I rebranded to Sagely Sparrow in 2016 because…

I’m a convert to Catholicism.

If you haven’t noticed, my jewelry is deeply routed in my Catholic faith. I converted to Catholicism in 2014 and found a love for the Saints during my conversion. That love made its way into my jewelry, so I eventually decided to create a brand with the Catholic Faith, and especially the Saints, at the center.

I’m a wife and mom of two.

I love this business. Making jewelry and running a business give me an incredible amount of energy and joy, but I consider my primary vocation to be wife and mother. My family will always come first, which means occasionally shipping times may be pushed back or my store may take a short pause. I always do my best to provide advanced notice.

I’m an aspiring metalsmith.

My most popular items are my patron saint necklaces and I love providing a unique and affordable gift options for Catholics. I also work in a material called metal clay, which I use to make my sterling silver studs and earrings- it’s metal that comes in a clay form and once fired in a kiln, everything except the metal is burned off and you’re left with just the metal.

In 2022, with a 2-year-old and a less-than-one-year-old, I decided it was time to take a 10-week silversmithing course. Since then, I’ve been continuing to learn and practice so that soon I can release so many new unique items- from rings to gemstone pendants and so much more. Hopefully these will begin to be released in 2024.

Some other fun facts about me:

  • Favorite color: blue
  • Favorite author: Kate Morton
  • Favorite singer: Miranda Lambert (I love her!)
  • Favorite Church song: Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing (I walked down the aisle to this song at my wedding)
  • Favorite verse: 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." This is where the name Sagely Sparrow came from!
  • Favorite Saints: The Blessed Mother is number one of me, but I also love St. Dymphna (my Confirmation Saint), St. Joan of Arc, and St. Michael
  • What I listen to while working: The Catholic Guy Show with Lino Rulli (on SiriusXM), Miranda Lambert, classic country (I love Willie’s Roadhouse on SiriusXM), or jewelry making/business podcasts
  • I used to have a pet hedgehog named Lazarus. We called him Lazzy.
  • I have one tattoo that I got in Jerusalem at the world’s oldest tattoo parlor, owned by a man whose family has tattooed Christians since the 1300s. The stamp used for my tattoo has been used for 500 years!
