I Stefanie's father has been taking her to flea markets since she was a kid. She still gathers materials wherever she goes--vintage findings, beads, and rocks from various travels. "Sometimes the elements dictate to me how they should be used," Stefanie told us. "I love to comb through bins of vintage stampings that my father created and incorporate them with silver and bronze items that I create. It is a way to pay homage to the past...and blend it with modern design." Stefanie may surprise you with an artfully placed vintage button from her seamstress aunt, or findings from her father's former manufacturing business, in fresh and clever constructions. Look for Stefanie's decidedly dichotomous beauties at The Flea on June 23, July 21 and August 18!
