My name is Stephanie Swanson and I have been involved in the jewelry industry since 1992. I am a fine jeweler but an artist at heart, and I love to make wearable pieces of art for my customers to enjoy and treasure! I live in Chesterton Indiana at the dunes on Lake Michigan. It is a beautiful area just outside of Chicago and a lovely place to live and raise our family. I have two boys, one of which is in college and the other is my son that inspired my family jewelry line, EveryChild.
The reason I started my EveryChild Family Jewelry line was that we adopted my foster son and there was a lack of representation for families like mine in the fine jewelry industry. This was a concern to me as I have been a bench jeweler and designer for years and have made lots of custom family jewelry for people but there were no designs for foster or adoptive families. I thought that there must be a lot of people like myself that would love to create a custom piece of sterling, gold or platinum jewelry that represented their own special family. So with that in mind I created EveryChild Family Jewelry to represent new births, domestic and international adoption, foster/step/grandparents, ethnic pride, special needs and loss of a child.
I love creating one of a kind jewelry and I know we could create a new family heirloom for you too! You can order a pendant right off the website or please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (219) 928-3902 and leave your name and number and I will get right back to you and help give you ideas to create your own EveryChild Family Pendant! We can also create a new design especially for you, so let me know what you are interested in! I am selling EveryChild at E&A Jewelers at 74 W. Lincolnway, Valparaiso, IN 46304 and their phone number is (219) 477-1767. You can always come and visit me in Chesterton, so get in touch and we can create a new family treasure together! I hope to hear from you soon!
Here are a few examples of my other work. I restyled old customer pieces using their stones and new stones I provided:
