Biography

Raised in South Louisiana, Stacey Fabre takes inspiration from not only her surroundings, but the component pieces themselves. Rarely is a specific idea of creation in place when she sits down in her studio. She is driven to let the component tell its story through her. She internalizes the piece and becomes a conduit for its energy and story. It is through this unique style and vision that the pieces become more than accessories—they become art.
The creative process is a fundamental element in Stacey’s jewelry. Doing custom work for her clients is what makes her tick. Sharing the energy of the client and the piece just adds to the creative development of the finished product—re-working the item from what once was, to a stellar piece that appeals to young, old, male and female. Turning cherished heirlooms into walking masterpieces is what it’s all about. It is through imagination, eclectic taste, an exuberant zest for life and a knack for re-purposing those things that have been discarded that Stacey brings her art to life and allows her works to tell their story. And that story continues through the client’s love of the piece.
