About Us  - Back to Menu

Stephen Hartzler graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Anthropology and another in Metals and Jewelry. He credits one of his Metals and Jewelry teachers, a Buddhist named Harlan Butt, with helping him find his direction and balance between metal, nature and skin.

A native Texan, Stephen prefers being outside and enjoys physical activities like bike riding, rock climbing, snowboarding and skateboarding.

He recognizes the strong cultural influences in most of his recycled jewelry, and feels that jewelry can be a direct representation of someone's cultural surroundings. To him, his metal jewelry can be considered a future artifact.

Growing up he preferred to screen print his own shirts and altered other clothes as he saw fit. He has always had a DIY approach to things, and for the past few years, he has been focusing on recycled materials.
