Award-winning jewelry designer, Steven Tapper, prides himself on bringing his customer's dreams to life.
Each custom designed piece of jewelry that he creates is a work of art that reflects his high standards of excellence in design and quality workmanship.
Steven's genuine caring about his customers, combined with his unique creative skills is what makes his custom designs so successful. Whether he begins from scratch or is remounting a customer's diamond or gemstone to give it a new look, he will dedicate the same time and care to each. His artistic process begins long before his pencil touches the paper. “When I design a new piece of jewelry, I take the time to think about the person who will be wearing the piece. Each creation has its own personality, which ideally reflects the style and soul of its owner,” says Steven.
In taking the time to get to know his customers, they have an opportunity to share in the excitement of the creative process. Once he has established the wants and needs of his client, Steven picks up his drawing pencil and the magic begins. Using gleaming precious metals and colorful gemstones as his palette, his creative juices begin to flow. His sketch is completed; its graceful lines and elegant detail reflect the eye of a designer and the hand of an artist.
Following the approval of his sketch, Steven provides detailed instruction to Tapper's master jewelers, and eagerly awaits the completion of the piece. “My greatest satisfaction is the joy on my customer's face when seeing their unique creation for the first time.” Steven not only sets his sights on the pleasure of the current wearer, but on the added distinction of the jewelry becoming a treasured heirloom, lovingly passed on from one generation to the next. And, having been a respected family jeweler for over 36 years, Steven often gets to personally share in the pleasure of the next generation!
Steven studied photography and design at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit. He earned a Bachelor's degree from Eastern Michigan University and was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts in 2011.
