Handcrafted Talisman Jewelry

Inspired By Ancient Lore



Hi, I'm Marie Tengren-Knight! I'm an English Jewelry designer & founder of Blackbird & Sage.

I create jewelry for empowered, freethinking women who live in deep connection with their authenticity, & who are drawn to wearing jewelry to express their raw power & wild intention.

For beautiful souls like you!

Who seek beyond the ordinary with unique empowering jewelry.
My jewelry is made for
  • free spirits
  • artists
  • yoginis
  • rock n' roll hearts
  • ancient, wild & bohemian souls


   "Empowerment, wildness & authenticity is my driving force & I believe that talisman adornment & using the magic & power of gemstones and crystals gives us the energy to elevate our consciousness & to find the freedom our spirits crave. My wish is to share that with you, through intention, intuition & conscious creation."





What I Do

Blackbird & Sage was founded in 2016, & features mixed metals, minerals, stones, crystals, & copper. The studio is based in the heart of Santa Fe, NM where I now call home.

From a little studio past the arroyo in the Santa Fe Railyard art district, jewelry is created with old soul/blue ray magic & intention, to elevate your day with high vibrational pieces of gemstone & crystal energy jewelry for you to wear & enjoy for many years to come.

My designs are intuitively created pieces so that
  • you can carry these energies with you throughout the day
  • to empower you to work with your Higher Self 
  • to the find freedom to live from the Soul
  • wear jewelry that has meaning to you
  • so that you can set your daily intentions



  • Copper is great energy conductor & some believe it has the ability to amplify the energies contained in crystals & gemstones
  • Copper is formed organically & slowly over several days
  • Some pieces take up to a week or more to create
  • Electroforming creates an natural & highly unique shape
  • No two pieces of jewelry are ever alike.



 I hail from England and moved to the US in 1999 at the age of 25, with a plan to live the van life and travel the country. Only 3 months into my new adventure I met and fell in love with a guy from Massachusetts and my plans drastically changed.

I slowly fell into working the corporate world, & after years of stress & anxiety, I eventually realized I had fallen out of alignment with myself. 

I've always had a lifelong love for art, self discovery, breaking societal boundaries & nurturing independence.  I've always gravitated to the magical aspects of life. Since 2014 I have been on a quest to journey back to my authenticity & to elevate & follow my own magic through awareness, meditation & frequency. In 2015 I began making jewelry in my spare time and in 2016 I took the plunge, left my corporate job & focused all my energy into working as a jewelry designer.

I see my work as sacred and fluid. My skills & designs are always evolving. Growth and expansion are important to me. I am full of gratitude that am able to work at my bench as a full time, self taught metalsmith.


Come explore my collection and find the perfect piece to express your unique spirit!


With Love,

I've purchased a few pieces from this shop and I've been 100% satisfied with every one of them. This ring is hands down my new favorite piece. Thank you!"


  • "I love my beautiful new ring. I originally ordered the small one and considered it too small so I wanted a companion and I ordered the bigger one. Now I stack them and they look beautiful together. I’m so happy. Thanks Marie for working with me. I highly recommend this vendor."
