Stephanie and Jenny each developed their unique personal aesthetics at a young age, taking inspiration from around the globe. Moved by her extensive travels throughout Europe while an undergraduate at the University of Pennsylvania, Jenny began designing intricately detailed mosaic art, tiled furniture and jewelry, which she then transformed into a successful, growing business. Meanwhile, inspired by a small bead store in Washington, D.C. that she frequented while studying graphic design at American University, Stephanie began to create unique custom pieces, which she then successfully sold in stores throughout New York and New Jersey. Jenny and Stephanie’s paths finally crossed in 2005 while working together in product development at a fine jewelry house in NYC. It was there they realized their shared design philosophy and began to forge a collaboration that would ultimately become Jemma Wynne.
