About Stefanie from Stefanie Sheehan Handmade Jewelry


Artist soldering jewelry in Long Island home studio

Stefanie Sheehan is a designer and metalsmith that strives to
create unique, high quality jewelry for everyday wear. Each piece
is handcrafted and finished by the artist herself in her Long
Island studio with materials derived from the USA when ever
possible and with gemstones that are ethically sourced. It is her
goal to use recycled metals and packaging wherever she can. Her
collections are inspired both by physical things in nature and
architecture as well as through feelings and emotions. She uses
abstract and literal motifs in her creations that are either hand
carved in wax and cast in metal or designed through metal
fabrication. Her work is influenced not by trend, but with the
desire to create something that can be seen as timeless. Jewelry
is a very personal accessory and it is Stefanie’s passion to
create pieces that people cherish for years to come. It is her
hope that the wearer develops a connection with their piece of
jewelry that makes them feel good and confident in their own
personal style. Whether connected by the story, the material or
the object, peoples bond with jewelry is strong, and it is part of
what inspires Stefanie everyday.
