Stephanie, Owner & Founder of PaulaMax Jewelry

This is our story... 

I was born and raised in a small town on the outskirts of Cleveland, Ohio. Coming from a low-income family and living in a trailer, I always knew I wanted something more for myself. I didn’t enjoy school, particularly with teachers telling me what to do and when to do it - you know, typical teen angst. Well, that angst never left me and after experiencing what the ordinary workforce was like, I realized that nope, that is not for me! I needed to be my own boss, work by my own rules, and live by my own terms.  

Fast forward years later to when I became a mom. Max is the energetic light of my life who also struggles with ADHD, ODD and impulse control. As any parent knows, it can be quite a handful to juggle kids, work, and other responsibilities all at the same time. So, I knew I would have to start something that I could do from home and still be available to him at the same time.  

I was struck with the loss of my mother at the age of 17. I wanted to find something, particularly a piece of jewelry, that I could not only carry the memory of my mom, but also celebrate Max. However, out of all of the jewelry out there, nothing was what I was truly looking for. I wanted  jewelry that was durable, wearable, and not too expensive; but still held the same value and integrity of the other higher priced jewelers out there.  

So, in 2016, I took matters into my own hands and created PaulaMax Jewelry! PaulaMax is my small jewelry business in which it received its name after my mom, Paula, and my son, Max. I chose to pursue specifically birthstone jewelry because I had 2 people in mind and each month holds a significant and unique meaning.
