Stephanie Lake has traveled the world and has the jewels to prove it. The Minnetonka designer’s global accumulation of baubles breathes new life into unusual — sometimes sinister — custom creations. From antique earrings rescued from the Hopkins Antique Mall, to precious gemstones gathered in Istanbul, Lake combines pieces from across the centuries for a timeless aesthetic. Lake is a Ph.D. scholar, curator, archivist and interior designer whose work has appeared in the New York Times and more. Pair her designs with a gown or a T-shirt and jeans, because Lake says you don’t need a special occasion to wear something special.
