Stacey Whale

The Candescent Project has commissioned jeweller Stacey Whale to create pieces for the Green Gold exhibition, using gold sourced from Oro Verde and fair trade gems from Columbia Gem House. Stacey's award winning, innovative and original jewellery uses a variety of precious stones and lenses and is handcrafted using gold and silver.

With funding from Cordaid and CAFOD, The Candescent Project sponsored jeweller Stacey Whale to visit Colombia in March to assist with the development and research process of the jewellery for the exhibition. Together we visited the Gold Museum in Bogotá and the artistic community of Villa de Leiva.
