Stacey Whale Boosted Crowdfunding Campaign

Stacey is thrilled to announce that her latest exquisite contemporary necklace has been accepted for the XIV Florence Biennale 2023, a prestigious contemporary art and design exhibition in Florence, Italy.

Stacey's exhibit will feature a beautiful piece of wearable art - a mesmerising and elaborate collar made of yellow gold and white diamonds, exclusively created for the event. "I am proud to have the opportunity to showcase it internationally and compete for the esteemed 'Leonardo da Vinci Design Award' and other special awards."

​Stacey is an acclaimed award-winning jewellery artist based in Tasman, New Zealand. She has made a name for herself as a dynamic and innovative force in the world of jewellery design, spending many years with passion and dedication developing new and innovative ways to incorporate originality and brilliance into her artistic practice. She is deeply committed to using her creativity to make a positive impact on the world, and her work has been recognized both nationally and internationally.

Although this is a significant accomplishment for Stacey, she cannot achieve it alone. To participate in this nine-day exhibition, from 14th to 22nd October 2023 at the Fortezza Da Basso in Florence, Italy, Stacey is seeking financial support. Your contribution will help cover the expenses of the exhibition, including travel, accommodation, and related costs, as well as the production costs of her masterpiece.

By contributing to her project, you will help make it happen and become a part of her exciting journey, help her develop her artistry and brand, and move her business forward while also assisting her in realising her dream. You are also enabling her to create fearless, bold pieces without financial concern and to focus on her passion for crafting significant unique sculptural jewellery pieces. Furthermore, your contribution will play a critical role in promoting New Zealand's contemporary art and design on an international level.


Stacey's crowdfunding campaign on the 'BOOSTED' website runs until 4th June 2023. Your contribution, regardless of its size, can have a significant impact, so please consider donating to support. She would be incredibly grateful for your help.
