Stacey Fay Designs: Philly Designed and Made
Good to meet you, I'm Stacey Fay! I am based in Narberth, Pennsylvania just minutes outside of Philadelphia, PA. All of my handmade jewelry is made by my team in historic Jewelers' Row in Philadelphia.
From Handmade to Vintage, I Believe Jewelry is Meaningful and Tells Your Story
I believe in the power of storytelling to heal, transform and celebrate. Every piece in my jewelry line has a story, and represents a journey traveled. Whether handcrafted jewelry or genuine vintage and antique jewelry, each piece is an heirloom.
Ethical Jewelry Made in Philadelphia
I believe in supporting the local economy and ensuring art forms are given the chance to survive. To that end, the Memoir and Revival jewelry lines are brought to life by local artisans right in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, using time-honored techniques such as hand engraving and hand enameling. Each collection is sustainably made using recycled metals and ethical stones.
Custom Designed Jewelry
Custom orders give you the chance to get a one-of-a-kind piece that you'll have forever. As you’ll see in the Memoir jewelry line, some pieces can be customized slightly to make them unique to you, and as you'll see in the custom portfolio there is a wide range of completely custom jewelry that is possible. Visit our custom jewelry page to get started.
About Me: Stacey Fay
I'm a Maker...A Mother...A Jewelry Designer...A Curator...A Philanthropist.
“Ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” – Leonard Cohen
I believe that a life well-lived is one where you celebrate the stories that make you unique. We are all so diverse, aren't we? Our jewelry should speak to all our experiences.
- I became a punk-rock vegan at 16.
- I helped sea turtles and birds in Costa Rica in my 20’s.
- I dedicated years to exploring Buddhist meditation.
- I spent a decade at the environmental non-profit GreenFaith.
- I graduated with degrees in ecology and environmental policy - not jewelry!
- I am largely a self-taught jewelry designer and maker, with the help of many mentors along the way.
Growing Up Came With Big Lessons...For Me, Loss and Mourning
This lesson to live life to the fullest has been hard won; throughout my teens and twenties, I experienced one difficult and major life event after another, including the loss of my father at age 12, the “absence” of my mother due to mental illness, and the loss of my sister suddenly and devastatingly.
Through my grief, I spent most of my young adulthood learning to survive, and to focus on the beauty life has to offer even in the most difficult of circumstances. It was at this time that the jewelry dream started, but couldn’t take off until I was at a point of wholeness.
Stacey Fay Designs Was My New Beginning
That point came in 2014, after a year of many changes—loss of my mother, love through marriage, and an awe-inspiring honeymoon to France. It was the wake up call I needed to start my own business, Stacey Fay Designs jewelry.
Each of the chapters in my life—the punk rocker, the nature lover, the survivor and the seeker—come together with Stacey Fay Designs. My offerings symbolize the life experiences that link us all, whether through meaningful Memoir jewelry, or antique jewelry holding the history of generations.
