Worn today, worn tomorrow & cherished forever
The Candescent Project UK commissioned Stacey to create jewellery using gold sourced from Oro Verde in Colombia and fairly traded gemstones, with funding from Cordaid & CAFOD. Her two jewellery pieces were prominently featured in the exhibition named 'Green Gold'. True to its name, the gold used in the pieces is mined without the use of harmful chemicals, and the working practices of the small-scale mines adhere to fair and environmentally friendly standards. As part of her involvement in the project, Stacey was sponsored to visit Colombia, where she drew inspiration that significantly contributed to the design development for the jewellery exhibition. The exhibition took place at the Art Workers Guild, Bloomsbury, London, during Coutts London Jewellery Week in June 2009.
Continuing her dedication to responsible and ethical practices, 'Conscious Choice' jewellery collection builds upon these designs, with additional pieces currently in development. Stacey wholeheartedly supports fair-trade and responsible mining initiatives and passionately welcomes commissions that align with this ethos.
