Stephanie Johnson's Bio

Stephanie has developed a range of contemporary jewellery using pleated, folded and crushed silver, delicately textured and embellished with gold detail.

She fuses, imprints and manipulates metal using traditional tools, but with a creative and experimental approach to processes and techniques. Some qualities in her work are a response to patterns and textures observed in nature, others reflect her fascination with contemporary Japanese textiles.

Stephanie works in a studio over-looking the Fal estuary in Cornwall.

She graduated from Loughborough College of Art & Design in 1980, with a first class Honours Degree in silversmithing and jewellery design and began work a year later in shared workspace before setting up her own studio in the Lake District in 1986. Stephanie moved to Cornwall in 1990 where the new environment and tropical gardens in particular have provided inspiration for her latest work.

Her work has been exhibited and sold in galleries and outlets nationwide. Recent work includes commissions from Kneehigh theatre, Cornwall and Royal National theatre, London.
