Stacey Lane Studio Jewelry

Gilding the Lily Since 1989...

Thank you for visiting!

I hope that my work conveys a sense of humor, warmth and elegance. I believe in jewelry’s potential to be symbolic, sentimental, superfluous, necessary, and even hopeful. To minimize my impact on the environment, I use recycled metal, look for responsibly mined gemstones, and use non-toxic material wherever possible.

In much of my jewelry, I use the remarkable lost-wax casting process. It enables me to transform soft, pliable wax into intricate metal objects. I leave marks on my pieces that emphasize that they are made by hands. The cast pieces are inspired by sources ranging from historical jewelry, to Dutch still-life painting, to Beatrix Potter. Each one has a slightly different personality. I embrace tiny imperfections in the stones and surfaces.

I am woefully behind in the studio these days, so am not currently taking on commissions. But if you are looking for a wonderful jeweler to work with on a custom piece, I recommend contacting Mora in Asheville - at this link - they are dreamy to work with...
