about the company

Design made for your everyday life with timeless simplicity


The Savvy Heart is a design studio founded by Terra Link and Jacob Rideout. We offer a variety of design services and an ever-evolving collection of goods based on timeless simplicity.

Established in California and based in Seattle, The Savvy Heart got it's start in 2014 as an outlet for Terra’s creativity and Jacob’s passion for business. We taught ourselves how to make jewelry and started selling at various pop-ups in San Francisco. Soon after, we realized we had a much bigger vision for the company. After relocating to Seattle, the company was re-branded to reflect a new lifestyle as a couple and started offering custom design services. 

Our work has garnered attention from Seattle Met, British GQ, Seattle Times and My Domaine to name a few.
