THE STORE AT MAD'S RE:FINE ARTIST
Stephanie Albertson is a New York City based jewelry designer and artist best known for her distinctive collection of handcrafted fine jewelry. Her designs combine her appreciation of the classical principles of jewelry making with a distinctly modern and fresh point of view.
Inspired by vibrant colors and luxurious textures, each piece in Stephanie’s collection is handcrafted using 22K gold and an assortment of fancy colored gemstones, diamonds and rare opals. Stephanie’s joy in her art comes from seeing her process in the final piece of jewelry – the bezel setting, the handmade nature of the chains, the mark of the artist. For Stephanie, while her pursuit of perfection in quality, materials and craftsmanship is tantamount to her art, she finds the beauty of her work lies in that there is something naturally imperfect that shines through in the finished jewels.
When asked about her inspiration, Stephanie says, “I make jewelry that I want to wear. That’s where I always start. My jewelry is about color and having fun. I love the expressive power of jewelry, and especially the notion that jewelry should be fun to wear.”
