About

Stefanie Sheehan was born and raised in Long Island, NY.

With an interest in ceramics, photography, drawing and painting, she decided to begin her college education as a Painting major at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. It was here that she discovered Jewelry Design and quickly realized it was her true love and calling. She loved the three dimensionality of jewelry, the scale she could work in, and that the human body became the canvas to her work.

After graduating with her BFA in Jewelry, and a Women’s Jewelry Association Award, Stefanie immediately began creating a studio in her Long Island home. She was now able to do what she always wanted, and start her own business. Stefanie Sheehan Handmade Jewelry emerged in 2012. She designs and hand makes all of her pieces in her home studio using materials such as silver, gold fill, brass, 14K gold and gemstones. Everything is cut, filed, soldered, and polished to create timeless, fun, handmade jewels. She believes jewelry is very personal and that it has a power to make you feel good and confident about yourself. She strives to make jewelry that can do just that for the wearer.

Stefanie pulls inspiration from so many things. Perhaps that is her artistic eye allowing her to see the beauty in everything that surrounds her. Both the clean lines of geometric shapes and the organic properties found in nature inspire her in her current collections. At times, merging both these inspirations, she hopes to create jewelry that can be cherished and loved for years to come.
