If you value intention and sustainability, you’ve come to the right place. In my experience, making jewelry is far more than just creating a piece of wearable art. It’s a collaboration of co-creating with the earth. I’m Stephanie, founder and designer of S. Howell Studios. My mission is to create tangible reminders to soak up the subtle beauty in life. I handcraft small batch, nature inspired jewelry with a deep commitment to sustainability.
Each piece I create is a heartfelt invitation for you to embrace the extraordinary in the ordinary. In the hustle and bustle of our fast paced lives, it's all too easy to overlook the beauty that surrounds us. I believe in the power of slowing down, connecting with the earth and soaking up the precious moments. My jewelry serves as a gentle reminder to pause, appreciate and find wonder in nature's boundless beauty.
Whether you're exploring a sunlit forest trail, strolling along a sandy beach, or simply savoring a quiet moment in your own backyard, my pieces are there to ground you, spark wonder and encourage you to approach each moment with a renewed sense of awe. They are tangible companions on your journey, whispering reminders to live harmoniously with the natural world.
After taking a jewelry class during my first semester of college, I was enthralled. Metal’s remarkable ability to have fluidity, malleability and permanence fascinated me. Without hesitation,
I embarked on a journey, dedicating my studies to the art of jewelry and metalsmithing.
In my early twenties, I encountered medical challenges that served as a wake up call, introducing me to life's brevity and the unpredictability of the future. Since my earliest days as a little girl, I held a deep love for nature. However, it was during those trying times that I unearthed the profound revelation that connecting with nature was the key to authentically embracing the present moment and living fully in the now.
In our fast-paced society, so many individuals struggle to find solace in the present, caught up in the constant rush of daily life. It was through this realization that I recognized the opportunity to utilize my skills and creativity to craft something meaningful—a reminder of the importance of cherishing each passing moment and fostering a deep connection with the natural world.
Jewelry making has become my canvas, where I weave narratives inspired by nature's beauty and offer you an invitation to slow down, embrace the present, and find wonder in the ordinary.
My deep commitment to our planet drives me to continually seek ways to minimize my impact.
