Liisa Steffa´s unique pieces of jewellery combine her passion as a designer, and her knowledge of cultural history. The themes and materials of her jewellery are found from her travels around the world: from markets, antique stores and flea markets. She uses both raw as well as more elaborate natural materials and miniature objects made of them. The aesthetic combinations are fascinating and the pieces of jewellery can be worn like pieces of art.
Liisa Steffa has studied history, art history and archeology in the University of Helsinki, and art in the Academy of Fine Arts. She moved to the United States in 1968 and focused there in textile art. When she returned to Finland in 1971 her patchwork exposition in the Helsinki Design Center was first of its kind here. Stuff has made her professional career at Otava as a nonfiction publisher.
