When you enter the campus of Henry Ford Hospital in West Bloomfield, it feels bright and engaging-very different than other hospitals. With its line of colorful stores, a coffee house and in-house spa, the place feels more like a purposeful destination than a place where you go when you are sick or hurt.
In the hall, down from the front lobby of HFH West Bloomfield, is the Live Well Shoppe, and tucked inside of that is a boutique called Accessories by Stephanie. This dazzling little shop is filled with vivid distractions for every occasion and the owner, Stephanie Oram, truly loves the location.
“My customers make a difference in my life and I hope to make a difference in theirs by lifting their spirits while offering them trends that are fashion-forward and classic,” shares Stephanie.
Stephanie opened her second location in 2010. This shop stands alone inside of the Lakes Medical Center building located at 2300 Haggerty Road in West Bloomfield.
Accessories by Stephanie sells a wide variety of merchandise that includes clothing, handbags and of course jewelry, but there is a lot more to see when you walk in. Beautiful scarves, belts, hats, shawls and hair accessories also adorn the shop. There are gorgeous Swarovski crystals, fresh water pearls, sterling silver, jade, onyx, coral, citrine and a multitude of other semi-precious stones embedded in unique jewelry. Stephanie designs much of the jewelry and the store offers free consultations, jewelry repair, gift certificates and layaway plans.
Stephanie Oram comes from a large family of entrepreneurs. She credits her father, Zia Oram, for being blessed with his work ethic and zest for life. Zia Oram passed in 2012 after 101 years of life.
“He taught me to love life and love what you do. He was a great role model and mentor and stressed the importance of making your own way in this world,” she shares. “His words are a constant source of inspiration in my life, and my business is my way of honoring my father’s legacy and following my passion in life.”
“I have been in this location for 14 years. It feels like home and I have a very diverse and fantastic clientele,” she shares. “This location allows me an opportunity to display my accessories in a world class award-winning environment.”
Enjoying the bright atmosphere inside the Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital is one of the perks of the location, but Stephanie points out that she is fortunate to meet some of the most fascinating people from all over the world here. It affords her the opportunity to display her one-of-a-kind jewelry designs to a global community of patients and visitors, as well as the great hospital staff.
Stephanie finds her greatest joy in the freedom she feels to express her creativity through her jewelry, clothing and other accessories. It is easy to recognize her eye for great design, and her loyal customers enjoy her creations. Indeed, 80 percent of Stephanie’s business is from repeat clients. She attracts a solid global customer base that is very loyal to her style and brand.
“It is extremely gratifying to see how pleased my customers are,” she beams. “It makes my work worthwhile and makes my job feel like my hobby, not work.”
When you love what you do, it shines through in your passion for your work and Stephanie’s creations, as well as her personal energy, certainly have that glow. Her accessories complete any outfit and have timeless beauty.
“You don’t need a whole new wardrobe to look truly great,” she offers. “Your look can be transformed with the help of a few key accessories. I love to help customers with fresh updates to their style using my favorite jewelry, bags and scarves.”
She has a great instinct for style and goes looking for it all over the world. Her small shop is packed with many options for shoppers, including designer brands from Turkey, Germany, Paris and London, just to name a few. Her best-selling items are clothing and jewelry that she designs herself. They are elegant, versatile and affordable. Her designs focus on beautiful stones and a vibrant palette. Her work is her passion.
“I am so fortunate to have turned my dreams into a reality by being a business owner. I hope to inspire women to be the best they can be while making them look and feel their best,” says Stephanie.
