If you have a jewelry lover on your gift giving list (and who doesn’t?) you should really check out the Stefanie Wolf studio and boutique on Circuit Ave. in Oak Bluffs. Wolf has been creating unique beaded necklaces, earrings, and bracelets on the Island for almost 20 years and is continually adding items to her inventory.
Stefanie’s most popular line, Trilogy, features tiny, richly colored glass tiles made in the Czech Republic. Each bead is a work of art. The rounded rectangular tiles have hand-painted edges — similar to the look of stained-glass panes — that inspired their name “Picasso windows.”
With a keen eye for color, Wolf pairs the beads in coordinating shades that mimic the blues and greens of the ocean, or in rainbow combinations that spotlight the uniqueness of each colorful bead. Many of the necklace styles feature multiple strands of beads in which the flattened mini tiles hang gracefully and show off the beauty of each individual bead.
The Stefanie Wolf studio offers numerous lines of the jeweler’s creations, along with other artisan-made products,including ceramics, bags, candles, clothing, and more.
