I stopped by STACEY LAMOTHE’S studio and lookey what she was making!

I live in Grass Valley… a very small town in the Sierra Nevada foothills (below Tahoe).

Luckily, many amazing animal advocate artists have found their way here, too.


One of those amazing artists, Stacey Lamothe, lives about 7 minutes from me.

You may have seen her work (website linked here) and I’ve written about her jewelry previously.

Well, today I visited Stacey.  She was just finishing up work on a pendant for a customer.  So, I wanted to show it to you.

This is the piece Stacey had on her bench when I arrived today.

This is the piece Stacey had on her bench when I arrived today.  I love the subtle design in their coats.  Stacey told me that these two were both rescue horses that landed very well, thank you HorseGods.

This goofy twofer felt so joyful and comic to me – it reminded me of Finn and BG.

I had forgotten how much fun Stacey has creating her pieces (Stacey likes to laugh).

And, I had forgotten how well she captures the essence of animals she has never met.

Just through photos…


It is so much fun for me to poke around other people’s art studios and find this and thats… pieces they are just starting or ideas they are working out.  I love that.

So, I did that – at Stacey’s.

I picked up llama faces and kitty cutouts, there were limestone shards by the sink and swirly pieces that were going to be a corporate logo.  There was every kind of connector, loop, closure, fastener, hook, ring… you name it, she had it.

My imagination was so excited!

Anyway, I wanted to show you some of her new pieces and give you her FB page so you could keep up with her frolics and have as much fun as I did today while ferreting through her studio!

She didn’t ask me to write about her… I just like to spread the fun!

I love the stamping she uses for the coat textures.

Last item I will list for MT’s hospital expenses for a while.  I need to concentrate on the March Bucket Fund story which will come out tomorrow…

I paid $275 when I was in Santa Fe.  I will sell them for MT for $75.

*If the link doesn’t work, that means the earrings have sold.  Thank you!!


I wanted to remember my trip to Santa Fe so I entered one of those incredible art galleries and purchased these earrings and a matching cuff bracelet (If you are interested in the slender cuff, let me know…).  I loooved the color and the opal sparkle!  Again, this is a pair of earrings I have never worn because I never wear earrings.  However, I purchase them often.

Why don’t I wear earrings?

I love earrings but my earholes are not symmetrical so I always feel that they don’t look good on me.  Yet, I keep purchasing beautiful earrings – to put in my jewelry box…

    So happy that you did an article about Stacey. I still wear the wonderful pendant that she made of Crystal, my Arabian mare . I lost her 9/5/11 and just felt I needed something so Stacey’s pendant in Crystal’s likeness was perfect. She has the greatest personality and it was such a joy to work with her designing the pendant and it took my mind off of my heartbreak. I hope that she is doing well.
