Steven Shein's jewelry line started as an avant-garde, anti-consumer art project of wearable & oversized jewelry. Inspired by the idea of maximizing commonly used materials, Steven Shein prefers inexpensive materials, such as wood or Plexiglas, over precious metals and stones. He also keeps his lines free of imported materials or outsourced labor in, for example, China. All jewelry is 'lasercut' in our own studio. His designs are eagerly taken by big pop stars.
