stacy

My name is Stacy and I have been making jewelry for over 10 years now and writing and filling journals for even longer! All of the jewelry I make is with Quartz and Quartz Crystal that I (or my awesome husband!) personally dig up from the mines here in Arkansas. It is such a beautiful place! And how cool is it to know that the piece you receive was taken from the ground and our hands have been the first to touch them since creation?! So cool! From the mine, I run the stones through several different washes to get the clay and iron stains off of them before I turn them into necklaces, earrings, and rings. The stone on your piece is just as it was taken from the clay, just clean. I am continually reminded of how Jesus pulls us out of the miry clay. He relentlessly pursues us, pulls us out, cleans us up and admires us. He admires us in the clay and muck of life and sees our potential even when we can't see it ourselves. I do not subscribe to the belief that these stones heal or have positive energy or anything like that. Instead, my jewelry making is an artistic expression of Christ's great redemptive love. His great redemption story! Writing, for me, has always been like crying on the shoulder of a best friend. The pages that I've poured over contain so much brokenness, but also so much restoration. To begin to share some of that publicly is something I once would have coward away from, but am now so excited to embrace. To build a place where others can also come and share their stories is an absolute honor to me. I hope that made. {written} can become a rallying point for us to encourage each other when life looks bleak, and cheer one another on in our triumphs. To God be all the glory! On a personal note, I am married to a pretty fantastic guy who I actually started dating in the 7th grade. We have three young children and I love them each so much it hurts! It has been a lesson in grace as I daily learn to juggle being a wife, a mommy, a friend, a maker, a business owner, a daughter, a sister and on and on. But I am so grateful to get to share something that speaks so much to my heart with so many people. 

My name is Stacy and I have been making jewelry for nearly 15 years now! It all started when as a teenager I could not successfully get my ears pierced. After three failed attempts, I began making my own clip on earrings. From there, my jewelry making has evolved into what it is today... although no more clip ons. I am married to my junior high sweetheart and we have three kiddos- 7, 5, and  4 years old. My favorite way to de-stress is with a dance party in the living room with my crew and my favorite way to unwind is with Netflix!
