Made & Found Spotlight: Juniper Bay Metals


Staci from Juniper Bay Metals

Describe your style, and what you plan to bring. What are your bestsellers?:
I love creating uncomplicated, wearable jewelry designs with organic undertones, texture, and raw or low-key bling-y gemstones. A lot of inspiration for my one of a kind pieces comes from looking at nature up close – microscopic sea life, diatoms in particular. I’m currently working on a series inspired by the moon’s surface, and am working toward building a body of work that studies the relationship of the moon to the tides, therefore the lifeforms within, melding my love of science and art.

My best sellers are often the tried and true staple pieces – studs, threaders, and other everyday pieces. My one-of-a-kind work, like pieces from the Moonscape and Microcosm series, are also great sellers!

How did you learn your craft or business?:
I concentrated in metalsmithing at ECU School of Art & Design forever ago but I love taking workshops either locally or at schools like Penland School of Craft to keep up my chops and learn new skills. There is SO much to learn and I can’t get enough of trying my hand at new techniques! I’m a total process-junkie!

What is your favorite way to put yourself in the mood for creativity or business mode?:
In the morning I like to throw the windows open, burn some incense, and find a good podcast! In the afternoon I usually need an energy burst so I crank some music, something energetic like Lizzo or the Roots, some 90s hip-hop, or 80s New Wave to get into my flow state.
