Stefanie was born and raised in Long Island, New York, where she found herself exploring many art mediums, including 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 loves the three dimensionality of jewelry, the scale she can work in, and that the human body became the canvas to her work.
She now owns her own business, designing and creating all of her pieces in her Long Island home studio.
