As a lover of nature, gardening and all things “green”, the idea of making jewelry from REAL leaves was a natural fit for Stephanie. In 2013, she was fortunate to cross paths with a gentleman named Ed, who shared his passion for ‘leafing’.
Over several months that Fall they spent time together as Ed taught Stephanie the lengthy process of coating real leaves with epoxy. She has embraced this delightful art which she calls “Naturally Forested”. The ‘Ed’ at the end is in honor of her dear friend and mentor.
