I am a metal smith and jewelry designer, as well as a multifaceted artist, seamstress, sculptor, and mother of three. I grew up a child of the desert. With a bohemian mother and a musician father, I roamed the canyons and valleys from Colorado to Wyoming and Nevada to Arizona, Here, the minimalism and grandeur of the Southwest became the foundation of my art. Like the desert, my design style is "Maxi-Minimalist." Big but not gaudy, bold but not flashy, delicate but not fussy or overwrought.

In 2016, I moved to the Cleveland area and have been deeply moved by the juxtaposition of nature - trees, lakes, rivers, gorges, and caves - versus the silhouettes and colors of the city - skyscrapers, steel mills, dilapidated buildings, and old brick roads. I find beauty in it all - and they all find their way into my work.

 

I am happy to create a custom piece, but I will not re-create another artist's design. I do consider trades on a case-by-case basis and I'd love to hear from you!  Please contact me using the form below or at stephanieleepaynter@gmail.com.
