Stephen Arnold has always had an affinity for the arts, jewelry, and anything beautiful and creative. He started making jewelry as a teenager and has been a professional bench jeweler for high end jewelry companies for the last twelve years. After a six year enlistment in the U.S. Navy, he attended G.I.A. in Carlsbad, California, and went on to apprentice in a very high end family owned independent jewelry store in San Diego, California. Stephen draws inspiration by combining contemporary elements often with fantasy and futuristic themes, preferring to work with colored stones, especially with fantasy-cut stones. His jewelry has appeared on the T.V. show, Dancing With the Stars, and celebrity personal at charity events. His overall style stresses geometric shapes, clean lines, and fluid movement.
“I strive to design and create jewelry that isn’t just luxury, but art as well.” – Stephen Arnold, F&C Creations
