Stephanie began her career in jewelry by apprenticing with a jeweler in her hometown of Wilmington, DE. She went on to study jewelry in college and received her BFA in metals from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. After college Stephanie moved to Seattle where she started her own line of jewelry, while continuing to work for other jewelers. In 2010 she became a jewelry instructor at North Seattle College where she fell in love with teaching. In 2012 she found a way to combine her passion of teaching with her appreciation of beautifully handcrafted heirlooms and has focused on With These Rings ever since.
How it started
"When my husband and I got married I knew that I wanted our rings to be handmade and meaningful. My husband suggested that we make each others. As a jeweler and teacher I was up for the challenge. Leading up to our wedding, there were a few times that I caught Brandt admiring his handy-work and touching up the finish on my ring. Making each others rings became such a special memory in preparing for our big day. Now when I look at my ring finger I see more then a symbol of our commitment, I also see the love and effort that we put into making our rings.
After our wedding I thought about what a rare opportunity it was for us to be able to make each others rings and I wanted to offer it to other couples. I would love to invite you to my studio to make your own bands. I am looking forward to hearing from you about your story and ring ideas!"
