Page Sargisson describes her Brooklyn studio as bright and happy, with a couch where she occasionally takes afternoon naps. The colors are fuchsia and orange - with two boys at home, ages 4 and 2, she doesn't get to see pink very often. Page has always been a designer of sorts, starting at age eight, when she would knit clothes for her Cabbage Patch Kids. "It just happens that you can make a business from jewelry since knitting for a living is almost impossible!" she says.
In creating her jewelry, Page doesn't always follow the rules of tradition. "Too much of this world is made by machine now and everything looks sterile. I love seeing the imperfections, the hand of the artist." Page mostly wears her own jewelry, although she and her husband found her engagement ring - a 1950's cocktail ring - in Rome, Italy.
Page has never owned a car, and is passionate about car-less transportation. She lived in Europe for a time, and is particularly fond of the railroad. With two kids, she rarely has thirty minutes of downtime, but takes those once-in-a-while opportunities to lie in bed and read. She indulges in chocolate on a daily basis.
