Coffee or tea? Chris Hemsworth or Chris Evans? Deep dish or thin crust? For some things, it’s impossible for all to agree. However, one artist is gaining unanimous praise for his elevated, edgy aesthetic. Celebrities are covering this season’s red carpets with his name, and it’s easy to see why.
Stephen Webster began his journey to the hearts of fashion’s most elite at the young age of 16, working as an apprentice in London’s jewelry quarter. Meticulously, he learned the old ways, mastering traditional craftsmanship. Today, his heritage remains at the center of his brand, translated through innovative designs inspired by music, fashion, literature, and nature. He approaches each creation as a writer does a page, full of stories that live only his mind. He takes his tools and forms his tale, from beginning to end, massaging the narrative to fit his ideal romance. Each piece tells the complete saga. In this way, through unconventional musing, Stephen stands as an anomaly among a sea of designers.
“As a jeweler, I can tell you that a small detail you can’t see even with the naked eye can ruin your whole day,” he says. “Any craftsman that cares about his work will say the same. But as with anything involving magnification, the world in which you operate is no longer part of the real world. It’s a slightly surreal, Alice in Wonderland existence but one that produces exquisite results”. Admiring our collection of the designer’s pieces, we travel farther into his rabbit hole.
Our esteem for Stephen Webster goes back to his pillar collection, Magnipheasant, recently worn by popstar Taylor Swift and actress Brie Larson. It includes diamond-dipped feathers that delicately dance on the ear, neck, or finger.
His Thorn Collection, worn by model Ashely Graham, mimics the captivating beauty of the rose, able to seduce almost anyone through its juxtaposition of soft lines and sharp points.
