Handcrafted In Brooklyn

All jewelry is handmade by me, Stefanie, in my jewelry studio in Brooklyn.  Materials are thoughtfully selected, and each piece is designed, photographed, produced, loved and shipped from New York, NY.  With a penchant for fashion, most of the pieces I make are things that I want for myself.  I just make a few extra, for you.


Fast & Flexible

I know it’s important to be able to test things in person, especially when you’re shopping online. I offer free US shipping, and free returns in the US. So feel free to try something out, and if you don’t like it, send it back on us. And even though all jewelry is handmade to order, it’ll ship within 1-2 business days.

High Quality Materials

All of the jewelry at A Common Thread is made with top-notch materials.  Most designs use 14kt gold filled or sterling silver materials.  Almost all materials are sourced locally or within the USA.  And whenever I can, I use sustainable materials like manmade stones or repurposed vintage jewelry.





Hi, I’m Stefanie 👋












From a family of DIYers and hand-makers, I started my first jewelry shop when I was 8. So it wasn’t really a surprise as an adult when I wanted jewelry that I couldn’t find in stores, I set out to make my own. I wanted simple and modern, but striking without trying too hard. Effortless and well-designed jewelry to easily throw on without too much thought. So, in late 2007, I started making jewelry for A Common Thread.
Over the past 14 years, I’ve been continually amazed and inspired to keep creating.  With a background in sewing, knitting and crochet, I try to incorporate non-traditional techniques into my jewelry, to create something unique and striking. And, with a love of everything vintage, I try to use repurposed vintage materials as much as possible.

  • Hi Stefanie~ Thank you so much for the beautiful necklace, I love it so much! Also thank you for shipping so quickly! Look forward to shopping with you again! Blessings, Estela~
  • "I love the necklace I purchased. I wear it every single day -- either alone or layered with others. It looks much more expensive than it is. And I love how simple yet unique it is."
  • Amazing necklace, I always have it on!
  • Was a birthday gift for a dear friend who's a jewelry minimalist. She's been going through a rough patch w/ her family and REALLY appreciated such a personal gift. She was delighted at it's simple design and has worn it several times already.
