“My mother was an artist and both my parents were award winning craftsmen who made hand wrought agate jewelry,” she says. Despite the early exposure, it wasn't until recently that Barbara returned to her roots and started stringing her own stones.
Her fashion jewelry is designed using semi-precious stones, minerals and fresh water pearls. “I also use Swarovski elements, crystals, pewter, silver and gold plate, as well as sterling silver,” says Barbara.
Barbara Steacy will be selling her original creations at the Goulbourn Museum’s Old-Fashioned Christmas – Art & Craft Sale this Sunday, December 1st from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
