Meet the Maker: Ariana Sagastizado

Hello there, beautiful souls!

I'm Ariana Sagastizado, the heart and mind behind The Independent Youth, a sanctuary for the free-spirited souls who revel in the magic of handmade, slow-made fashion. At 28 years young, I embarked on this journey to curate a haven that mirrors my evolving sense of self – a space where every creation reflects my ever-changing spirit.

The story of this little shop is a tapestry woven with my passions, and now, my path has led me to the enchanting realm of jewelry making. It fills my soul with joy to extend my artistry to each and every one of you.

With every piece I craft, I pour a piece of my essence, my very being, into it. Each creation is more than just an item; it's a manifestation of my personality, a tangible expression of the free-spirited essence that dances within me.

But The Independent Youth isn't just a shop; it's a lifestyle, a celebration of individuality and self-expression. It's a haven created with you, yes, YOU, in mind. Join me on this journey as we weave dreams into reality, as we create timeless treasures that resonate with the very core of your being.

Should you have any questions or simply wish to connect, don't hesitate to reach out. My virtual door is always open, awaiting the whispers of your curiosity.

With boundless love and creativity,
