The Bohemian Life


Image: My Bohemian Style

We are the music makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers,And sitting by desolate streams;— World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams: Yet we are the movers and shakers. – Of the world for ever, it seems. ~Arthur O’Shaughnessy, “Ode,” 1874

Many refer to my brand as Bohemian, which now is a trendy term, but it’s origin is deeply rooted in who I am as an artist and what The Sage Lifestyle is all about. Growing up in a home full of hippies, with my mother painting on my clothes in the middle of the night, it became a way of life for me. To dream and create designs from those dreams. This love for the non-traditional lifestyle and way of thinking is what brought about The Sage Lifestyle. Without the freedom to imagine and get a little dirty while doing it, can you really produce designs that will inspire others to imagine? I have traveled the world to find crazy, beautiful vintage baubles that are then reworked into modern, yet timeless pieces of wearable art, using only precious or semi-precious gemstones, sterling silver and 14 karat gold. My life is my work, there is no line between the two for me. I do what I love, I do it with passion, and I do it my way.

With it’s origin dated back to the nineteenth century, the word bohemian described a group of non-traditionalist in major European cities living an artistic way of life. Artists, writers, journalists, musicians and actors fell into the category of people whom lived a bohemian lifestyle. The term continued to grow a movement of free thinkers, artistic minds and whimsical spirits embracing the bohemian attitude.


“In creating my Faint collection I went deep into my roots and was inspired by the vintage jars my mother used to hold her paints in and created an homage to her and all the valuable life lessons she, a true bohemian introduced me to!
