Stephanie Lee Paynter is a jewelry designer, metal smith, artist, sculptor, seamstress, and mother of three.
I call my design style “Southwest Modern.” All of my work is made by hand in my home studio of Lakewood, Ohio. I take inspiration from my Arizona roots, my obsession with modernist art, and my background in various design styles of the 20th century. My work pairs classic metal smithing techniques with on-trend style to create truly unique pieces of wearable art - from very affordable, to high-end and one-of-a-kind.
