Stacey Bentley graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2008 with a 1st class honours degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing. It was here that she first developed a passion for enamelling as part of the jewellery making process, inspiring her to embark upon an MA in jewellery, also at ECA.
Through material experimentation, Stacey’s work explores the new possibilities that industrial liquid enamel can bring to contemporary jewellery. Her aim is to challenge the pre-conceived ideas attached to enamel by questioning technique, process and aesthetic. Stacey’s elegant yet gritty structural work is informed and inspired by the industrial city.
