As a boy, crafts and decorating guru Stephen Brown found himself in post-holiday doldrums after every big celebration, but he learned that through crafting for the next upcoming occasion he could turn those feelings around and literally "Make every day a holiday!"
After working as a costume designer for television and film in New York City, Stephen launched Glitterville, his successful line of giftware and holiday decor. He is the author of Glitterville's new holiday how-to book series and can be seen in Hollywood as a judge on TLC's Craft Wars hosted by Tori Spelling.
Bryan started at Glitterville on New Year's Day 2008 as a photographer for the Glitterville catalog. He soon discovered how easy it is to get sucked into the Glitterville circus, in a regular day he is routinely corresponding with factories about products, photographing any and everything for catalogs and blogs, traveling the world with Stephen Brown developing products...and when it all gets to be too much...hiding in his office that is covered floor to ceiling with his grand collection of knick knacks!
Glitterville was founded in 2003 by Stephen Brown and Bryan Wilkerson. Stephen Brown an avid crafter, wanted to combine his passion for making things and celebrating into wacky and whimsical ornaments for the Holiday seasons. Bryan Wilkerson was the art department head at a local college before joining Stephen in this pursuit of a glittery new brand. After 3 years and many long hours, Bryan Wilkerson decided to return to his teaching position and dedicate more time to his new son, we thank him for his many creative contributions in our eariy years.
Today, the Glitterville brand sparkles brighter than ever with thousands of products, books and television notoriety dedicated to our motto of "Making every day a holiday!"
Stephen makes the original piece for most of Glitterville products, then he travels to Asia and Europe to work with local artisans who reproduce his designs using the same techniques he used to create the original. This style of manufacturing insures every Glitterville product truly represents the quality that Stephen desires when he starts designing each piece.
