Stacey's passion & dedication to jewellery design derived out of the appreciation of the arts and crafts, and by exploring and learning a diverse array of artistic skills and principles over the years. Stacey went on to combine this knowledge with her natural creative abilities and intuitively knew it was to be through the art of jewellery that she would express her creative self. With the ability to think outside the square, Stacey takes pleasure in pushing industry boundaries to create fine jewellery that delights, intrigues and allows the wearer to express their visual communication and individuality.
Stacey's exceptional jewellery design attracts worldwide attention and has won craftsmanship and design awards, including technological innovation and fine jewellery design. Her unique style, one in particular is the use of precious lenses that 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. Bought up around textiles and studying textile design after leaving school, Stacey combines all of these diverse inspirations to create original pieces of wearable art. Each piece of jewellery is created to the highest level of craftsmanship, using the finest quality materials.
