Jessie Shepherd

Owner + Boss Lady of Amaranth + Artifact

When a love for antiquing and a passion for interior design collide a beautiful mess is made. That is the the heart and soul of this business. Jessie Shepherd created Amaranth + Artifact out of her home, moved it to small storage unit after a year and quickly grew into a 1200 square foot warehouse. She credits her art and design degree for facilitating a unique approach to pairing old finds in a new exciting ways. Design and decorating has been a passion since she can remember. Running streamers from ceiling to wall and placing every last table detail, she recalls going way over top for a sisters 7th birthday party.

On any given day you may find her hunting for treasures, designing a lounge, drawing up plans, scotch guarding sofa’s all while sipping coffee and answering emails in the same hand. She holds pride in her work and see’s every last detail to completion.

AMARANTH + ARTIFACT
A few words about the name.

“Growing flowers and vegetable gardens was always a part of my childhood. I have my favorite flower varieties and Amaranth is the most unique. The word ‘Amaranth’ was used to name an undying flower that was described as immortal, eternally beautiful, and of deep red-purple color. The definition resounded with me, as it is how I strive to live; brightly with unfading love. The second half of the name came to me after noticing my eclectic décor style. Artifacts and handcrafted treasures decorate my walls. Almost every piece of furnishing and décor I have in my home comes with a memory or a story.”

In literal terms, the word Artifact is described as ‘An Object made by humans, with cultural and historical significance’.

“Each furniture and décor piece sourced comes with its own culture, history and story and I LOVE that. I feel the name {Amaranth + Artifact} has its own meaning; an eternal love for objects that have a story to tell.”
