You could probably tell from her products that artist Stacey Lamothe is a dog lover. But she doesn't stop there--she also loves to create pieces with cats and barnyard animals.
Stacey took her first metal course in 1998 and fell in love with working with copper and sterling silver. Her first pieces were tiny portraits of her dog. She hammers, saws, solders, rivets and stamps each piece until it is just right.
Her work makes her happy, and it makes her laugh. She wants to others to feel the same when they see it.
Stacey lives in Grass Valley, California with her husband, two dogs and nine chickens.
