At what point do you discover the passion for what you want to do for the rest of your life? For Steven Cooper, it was in Industrial Arts metal class in Junior High School. Who knew that a rigid, cold metal could be so yielding and forged into beautiful creations? This discovery continued at Bloomfield High School, NJ, where he took every art class available and realized he wanted to work with metal for the rest of his life!
His search for the place that would nurture his dream would lead him to Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and its School for American Craftsman. Here, he had the privilege of studying under Hans Christiansen, one of the finest silversmiths. Encouraging clean design and reason for everything remains Steven Cooper's modus operandi. "Never add anything that doesn't belong," Hans would say. 40 years later, those words still echo for Steven whenever he is designing.
After receiving his degree from RIT, Steven continued his education at The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). There, he learned from some of the industries greatest designers including Tiffany's and Harry Winston as well as “freelance designers” who create for all levels in the jewelry industry. Rounding out his education, he studied with several top craftsmen including Anthony Lent, who went on to become the Dean of the Jewelry Design Program at FIT.
His inspirations are from the natural world that surrounds his home where you'll find him working and loving life, and not adding anything that doesn't belong
