Inspired by human emotion, nature, wildlife and her background in painting, Stefanie Sheehan’s handmade jewelry just jumped to the top of my wishlist. After deciding that jewelry was her calling, Stefanie graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA for jewelry design in 2012 and has been churning out gorgeous collections ever since.
Stefanie feels, “Jewelry is an art that could be shared in a very personal way with the wearer of my pieces,” finding this to be a unique and special way to make people happy and express herself to the world.

sometimes when there’s not a flea market in sight, i long for my vintage furniture fix. i want to shop for unique, pre-loved pieces i won’t find in a typical furniture shop — one of a kind, gently used items that i don’t see everywhere. and i’ve been shopping chairish for those very reasons. but now, they’ve made it even easier, because i can buy and sell on the new chairish iphone app from the itunes app store. my rule of thumb (at least i try to stick to it) is ‘one thing in, one thing out’ — so now i can easily snap photos of the items i want to sell and upload them to the chairish app and submit them to their chairish tastemakers sale, just like that. with a couple of steps i’m well on my way to making room for new pieces!
i’ve uploaded a few pieces i’m selling this week to chairish using the app, just to try it out and it was super simple. i’ve made some changes around my home so now i’ve got to let these pieces go — a beautiful gold gilt mirror, a vintage cafe chair i’ve loved to stack books on, and my beloved mid-century modern coffee table. i’m sad to see them go, but i like changing my look up and it’s nice to know they’ll soon belong in a good home.
Meanwhile chairish is giving away a designer room full of awesome furniture (10 items worth a total of $5k!!), and anyone that a downloads the app and creates an account is automatically entered to win. This is one chic space, and I’d love any one of the beautiful pieces below — that Roost Anders high-back chair and ottoman are amazin! So to enter:
