Jewellery can be a lot of things. But, for Sarah Jane Bourque, founder of Saint By Sarah Jane (previously Seneca Jewelry), that thing is a commitment to excellence. With over twenty years of experience as a professional designer backed by her education at SCAD, Woodbury University Art, and an apprenticeship in the world of haute couture in Paris, Sarah’s pieces have been displayed in a long list of prestigious stores, including Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bloomingdales. More recently publications, such as People Magazine, Style, and British Vogue, have also been paying attention to her designs, featuring them on their glossy pages.
Saint By Sarah Jane
But, while Sarah’s professional experience has accounted for much of her success, the one thing that she credits for inspiring her the most is starting a family. Saint By Sarah Jane, the latest creation from this talented designer, illuminates this along with Sarah’s design philosophy, which she describes as “Strong, sleek, and principled, with modern ease and sophistication”. Increasingly aware of how active (and busy) modern women and especially mums are, Sarah has focused on creating jewellery pieces that can easily transition from one activity to the next – and without ever sacrificing on elegance or style.
Saint By Sarah Jane’s pieces are handcrafted using a variety of materials, including 18k gold, sterling silver, and natural gemstones, as well as unique patterns and textures that give character to each design. Sarah describes the collection as “A bespoke line of handcrafted jewellery that merges modern edge and ease, with ancient philosophy and personal meaning”, And, because each piece of jewellery is created to order in the United States, you can feel confident that your new accessories really will be works of art.
From simple studs and sparkly drop earrings to charming necklaces and matching sets, each Saint By Sarah Jane Jewellery Collection has been inspired by the Roman philosopher Seneca and his timeless wisdom. For those who wish to be reminded to cherish what they have “Nothing is more honourable than a grateful heart”, for others who have endured, or are currently enduring difficult times “It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness”, And, of course, for us all “If you wish to be loved, love”, wise words indeed!
Sanguine Heart Collection
The theme behind the Sanguine Heart Collection, to be loved by first loving, infuses each piece with extra special meaning; To, above all, remain cheerfully optimistic and hopeful. And, the sanguine heart symbol is incorporated into each piece of jewellery in the collection – from the Forget Me Not Rings and Station Cuffs to the Drop Earrings.
Saint By Sarah Jane Jewellery is instantly recognisable for its outstanding craftsmanship and beauty. The intricate process, which takes place in Sarah’s very own design loft in Arizona, ensures that her commitment to excellence is found in each and every piece.
Timeless and purposeful, giving or receiving a special piece of jewellery marks a significant moment in time. A special piece of jewellery will be treasured for years to come, maybe even passed down for generations. To help ensure that it will be, choose something truly unique, made with care, attention, and a whole lot of sanguine!
