Recognised for her unique style and innovative design, Stacey's jewellery is superbly handcrafted in gold and exquisitely set with a mix of unusual and vibrant gemstones. Her timeless classic modern style is sophisticated, beautiful and feminine, with designs that are at the cutting edge of contemporary fine jewellery design.
Nicknamed eagle-eyes as a child, Stacey's passion and dedication to jewellery design derived from a young age of spying and collecting shiny objects, combined with a natural creative talent and desire to create objects that are expressional and intimate alongside beautiful and original. With an ability to think outside the square, Stacey takes pleasure in pushing boundaries to create jewellery which delights, intrigues and allows us to express our visual communication and individuality.
Believing in ethical integrity Stacey proudly supports fair trade initiatives, offering her clients a conscious choice and welcomes bespoke commissions that embrace this ethos. Stacey hopes that making a piece of jewellery made with a conscience, will empower us with the knowledge and consciousness that a decision made today, directly effects the existence and quality of another persons life and our environment.
Stacey's exceptional jewellery design attracts world wide attention and has won craftsmanship and design awards which include technological innovation and fine jewellery design. Her unique style, one in particular is her use of precious lenses which employs her original technique of setting loose gems under a magnifying lens creating the illusion that they are suspended or floating in liquid. In other designs her delicate lace like settings allow the light to reveal the true colour and beauty of the gemstones she chooses. Rather than use traditional claw settings, Stacey has also devised a way of casting gold inspired by the natural forms of native New Zealand flower pods.
As an artist designer, Stacey takes her inspiration from a broad range of natural forms and architecture and is especially interested in organic shapes, structures and textures at the microscopic scale. Having been bought up around textiles and briefly studying textile design after leaving school, Stacey combines all of these diverse inspirations to create a wonderful piece of functional wearable art. Each piece of jewellery is created to the highest level of craftsmanship using the finest quality materials.
Born in New Zealand, Stacey studied at the School of Art and Design at Whitireia in Wellington, New Zealand, majoring in Jewellery design and graduating in 1999. Stacey took up residence in the United Kingdom in 2001 to 2010 basing herself in London and has now returned to her home country to start a family and is slowly setting up a studio at her new residence in Plimmerton, which is situated on the coast of Wellington in New Zealand.
