       Why did you start your business?

   I’ve always been a self-starter but what pushed me was the start of Motherhood.  It broke my heart having to leave my son (now I have two) with someone else while I went to my 9-5.  I immediately started to prep for my own business.  Etsy wasn’t it.  I went to local boutiques and got my name out there.  After 10 months, my dream of being home with my beauty came true.

How long does it take you to create a piece from inception to Etsy listing?

This is a tricky one. It depends on the piece. Some I start and pick back up in a week, because I can get “designer block” ....  If it’s a simpler piece and I am working at it FT, a few weeks. I’m very picky and almost always rework a piece multiple times before I am satisfied.

What advice/tips do you have for accessorizing with your pieces?

Autumn is upon us and no outfit is complete without a set of Savannah Rose Design metal leaf earrings. Check em out! They are sure to spice up a simple outfit or add to your night out piece.


Do you have a favorite? Why?

It’s a definite tie between my feather ring and the leaf earrings. I have feather wrap rings, which if I can say so, rock, but I am all about comfort and simplicity, which is why I adore my simple feather ring.


Anything you'd like our audience to know about you or your process?

My heart and soul go into every piece. I’m constantly exploring new ways to make things even better. When you buy from Savannah Rose Design, you can trust that you’re getting a piece that’s been truly looked at over and over again before submission. Thank you so much for reading about little old me!
