Stephanie Dubsky graduated from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna with a Master’s Degree in product design. Settling in New York City in 1999 to work for the Guggenheim Museum and the Neue Galerie, she ran the Design Shop: her persisting love for creating objects by hand led her inevitably to this. Stephanie has recently begun to explore incorporating repurposed elements from heirloom objects such as precious stones or pearls into her pieces, creating jewelry that combines heritage with a contemporary design aesthetic.
The Whitney Museum carries a collection of her handcrafted porcelain rings and bowls designed exclusively for the Whitney Shop. Selected by New York City Jewelry Week (NYCJW) as one of the designers to showcase at its first NYCJW headquarters in Soho, New York in 2018, and currently featured by NYCJW as one of their favourite emerging talents. Stephanie was honoured to participate in MAD About Jewelry, an annual show featuring acclaimed and emerging jewelry artists at the Museum of Arts and Design in December 2021. Her work has just been accepted to participate in the Japan Jewellery Designers Association competition 2022.


Every piece I create is unique and crafted of porcelain by hand. The tactile process of shaping and texturing, contrasting smooth versus rough surfaces, shiny and matte, glazed versus unglazed porcelain is deeply satisfying, and a sensory experience that lives on in my creations.
