About the Founder

My name is Stephanie Sekou, the founder of Studio Tian. My entire jewelry collection is handmade slowly and intentionally in small batches at my home art studio in a town one hour south of Frankfurt, Germany.

Each material used is hypoallergenic, lead free and nickel free. Materials include: gold fill, sterling silver, glass and gemstones. 

I was born and raised in Rowland Heights, California to immigrant parents born in Taiwan. After earning my MFA in Visual Studies from Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon, I decided to head back home to Los Angeles. I worked full time as a real estate assistant and book keeper for a few years before going full time with my business. At the time my business was called Wilder Bag Co. because I started my business as a Vintage Coach Bag reseller on Etsy.

In the next five years I see myself owning a co-op retail and art studio that will be a community meeting center for open mics, pop up events, town hall meetings, and small business workshops.
