The story of Juniper Bay by Staci of Juniper Bay Metals:
Having grown up the daughter of a waterman in rural, coastal North Carolina, I often heard my father and his friends speaking of fishing spots. Juniper Bay was one such place and the name always resonated. I like the way it feels, the imagery it conjures.
Juniper Bay is part of the Pamlico Sound and the Swan Quarter National Wildlife Refuge, a pristine, largely untouched salt-water marsh and woodland area along the Inner Banks of NC. The bay and its bordering marshland are a thriving habitat for sea life and migratory waterfowl.
Every piece is handcrafted, by me, in my small studio in Raleigh, NC. Starting with both raw and refined materials I utilize multiple processes to handcraft each piece of jewelry. Forging, fabrication, casting, chasing, and stone-setting are some of the techniques found in my work.
Much time and care is given to each creation with beauty, composition, wearability, and quality being of utmost importance.
