About Strawberry Small Works Studio
SSWS is a custom stationery design studio specializing in weddings and parties. Small works of art are the center of SSWS's high-quality products. Designs feature hand-drawn illustrations, beautiful watercolor, and unique calligraphy. Now based out of the beautiful harbor town of East Greenwich, RI, SSWS was originally established in Somerville, Massachusetts in 2010. New England is surely Rachel's first love and biggest inspiration but SSWS has crafted unique wedding details for brides all across the country. In 2011, dear friends of Rachel's asked her to create a painting and turn it into their wedding invitation. Since then her style has evolved and product line has expanded into seating cards and signs.
