He got into jewelry-making because he thought it would be fun to create his own jewelry. Stephen shared with us that seeing all the amazing pieces of beautiful jewelry and wonderful artists on Instagram made him want to try making his own.

As a creator, one of the biggest challenges for Stephen is putting all of it together correctly. He said one small mistake can undo everything you did. On the other hand, one of the best things about it is being able to create memorable pieces. For Stephen, he told us he will not forget the one he made with gold with a turquoise piece and diamond ring he made as it came together so easily and turned out beautiful.

For creators, we bet there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing your work come all together, right?

Stephen is inspired by nature as it always puts him at ease so he finds a way to incorporate it into some of his pieces. Recently, he turned one stone into a flower bud. Creating inspired by nature!

Being lovers of turquoise, we also asked a fellow turquoise lover like him as to why he uses them. Stephen said he loves using turquoise because they come in so many different sizes and shapes. He likes that there are so many types and colors to choose from when working with turquoise.

Check out some of his work!

Finally, we asked him what tip he’d give for fellow creators. “Never give up and don't stress over failure or when you make mistakes,” Stephen said. He said that such things will happen but they will help you get better as an artist and help you grow. Indeed!
