Lone buttons, tarnished coins, vintage brooches, even antique compact mirrors, all inspire the creative spirit of Jackson Hole local Stefani Thompson. The jewelry designer explains her collection of found objects begs for a new life. “There is so much waste in the world. If I can make something old new again, well, that promise, and possibility inspires me.”

Even as a young girl Stefani was drawn to anything and everything with a history or story. The character of old buildings, antique books, Victorian jewelry, the Art Deco period all intrigued her. Her strong desire to pay homage to antiquities inspired her to further explore her creative side.

While staying keen to rising fashion trends, Stefani’s true passion is to repurpose. Modernizing each element with raw, rustic leathers, antlers and horns, the beauty of her collection lies within seamlessly uniting the old with the new.

While many of her pieces demand a night on the town Stefani’s most valued rule when designing is that her jewelry be easily worn with a t-shirt and jeans. A genuine boutique artist, she continuously searches for one-of- a-kind treasures to make each piece truly unique.
