Schaef Designs Jewelry is artisan handcrafted jewelry designed and created by Bobby Schaefer, based in Phoenix, Arizona. Turquoise, Variscite, Pearls & Gemstones are hand selected by Bobby and in many cases cut and cabbed as well.
Bobby, founded Schaef Designs in 1989 when she was making exclusive high end knit collections for a discerning clientele. The jewelry collections evolved to compliment the high end clothing she made.
Her passion for making jewelry began at the very young age of 5 years old where she learned to string beads by 2 Native American women in Northern Wisconsin while vacationing with her family. The love of making jewelry was born!
"Schaef" as many friends refer to her, is thankful for the long time privilege of knowing & learning from the masters in the industry...Native American & Southwestern as well. Long time friendships have evolved with Vince Platero, Arland Ben, Leonard Nez, Warren Nieto, David Troutman, Leo Feeney, Oscar Betz & Rocki Gorman so meaningful to Bobby.
Bobby believes it is important to learn as much as you can and hasn't stopped since she was 5 years old. In the past 10 years she has added lapidary to her skill sets. A rebel in silversmithing and cutting stones she sees no boundaries...just opportunities.
Her love of animals shows up frequently in her jewelry. This shows in her Pet Lovers Jewelry collection as well as her Totem Animal jewelry.
