Stacie grew up in Middlebury, Vermont where she thrived artistically with unlimited access to her Mom’s stenciling paints, vintage button tins, and fabric collections. In school she found that art was her favorite and most successful subject and she later attended Castleton State College and graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art.
Stacie is best known for her designs utilizing recycled zippers, which she organizes into interesting patterns to create beautiful and unique jewelry. Stacie began creating with zippers in 2005. She begins with whole zippers and cuts the fabric tape off, standing them up or flipping them on to their sides to be glued to a wood base. She often describes the process of filling in the spaces as painting with zippers.
