Itching to create things with her hands, she took herself to the local art school thinking she would enroll in a pottery class. Unsure of what to do next when she discovered the class had closed, she turned to metalsmithing instead where she hammered her heart out and has never looked back. She still uses a tin can that she forged out of copper on her jewelry bench to this very day, reminding her how close she came to missing out on her true calling as a jewelry maker.
Stephanie’s designs have since sold all over the world, working with teams overseas as well as teams in the US in the areas of design, merchandising, product development, pricing, manufacturing, and sourcing. She is a proud jewelry nerd and now the CEO of Metalicious, which she founded in 2005. She has found true contentment in creating beautiful jewelry that brings joy to her customers, represents life’s most important personal moments, and that makes people feel loved.
We are proud creators of jewelry that’s beautiful and conscientious. We’re aware that diamonds have always been synonymous with luxury, but they’re not always the most ethical option. This is something we are not willing to compromise on. Diamond mining more often than not includes poor working conditions, mistreatment of labor, and violence. If we’re going to market ourselves as an honorable brand, the principles have to translate across all aspects of our business. We source stunning ethically-sourced gemstones from trusted partners and our customers have come to love both the pieces they purchase and the manner in which they were created.
We’ve been a team for so long, led by a hugely creative mind with years of experience to guide us — it would be a waste if we didn’t share this with you! Our blog is home to interesting and inspirational pieces about birthstones, trends, and more.READ OUR BLOG
