Sarah Walsh Jacobs || Studio Owner
Hello and welcome to the SWB Jewellery Studio! I'm Sarah - lead designer and studio owner. This year I am proudly celebrating 12 years in business! I feel so lucky to be living my dream. I love what I do, and have so much love for everyone who has supported my business throughout the years. SWB Jewellery is based out of the beautiful Glebe neighborhood of Ottawa, Canada. I work alongside my talented team of assistants from my sunny design studio (pictured above!). We're on the second floor of an old heritage building, complete with exposed brick walls and creaky hardwood floors. We are here everyday designing, making, shipping, and meeting with local brides (by appointment).
My collection is designed and made with precious metals, freshwater pearls, Swarovski Elements and gemstones. We handcraft every item with the utmost love and care. All pieces are made-to-order, then shipped to fabulous brides all over the world! Our brides are the best - I've been so lucky to connect with so many amazing women over the years!
I started designing jewellery as a hobby (from my parents' basement!) while I was at the University of Ottawa studying Psychology. When I graduated, it was either get a "real" job, or go full force with my creative/entrepreneurial side. Clearly I made the right decision as, over a decade later, I still absolutely love working in the wedding industry!
When I'm not at the studio, I love going to dance and yoga classes, thrift shopping, DIY projects, and relaxing with a big glass of wine! I live in the West end of Ottawa with my husband, Tyler, and little rescue Yorkie, Timmie :) Speaking of Timmie, I also run a little side project to raise money for local rescue dogs.
