ENJOY THIS EPISODE:
Stacey Krantz joins Frederick Advice Givers to share here personal and entrepreneurial journey from growing up 4th Generation Fredericktownian to owner of In Bloom Jewlery at the ‘Top of The World’ (on Braddock Mountain).
Stacey started out with just a few pieces of Jewelry that she made and attended a show at Eastern Market, Stacey she enjoyed selling so much she returned every weekend. Within a years time she had made more than she could have in her prior career as a social worker. Thus, In Bloom Jewelry was born.
From Stacey’s bio: After my brief career as a Social Worker I took a turn toward the creative life in 1998. Although I consider myself “self taught” as I’ve had no formal design or technical training I have taken some wonderful workshops with Shana Kroiz at the Maryland Institute College of Art Jewelry Program, Blaine Lewis at The New Approach School and learned the most from the gifted goldsmith Alan Reveere. His wonderful books and video learning series got me off to the right start.
I’ve created many collections over the years simply intended for the wearer to feel beautiful and appreciated. Recently, I have turned my attention to one of kind pieces and custom fine jewelry which I greatly enjoy creating.
Listen in as Stacey shares her Journey…

One of a Kinds
Recently at a show a woman said to me, “When I look at your jewelry, all I see is Peace!”
This meant a great deal to me because there are two things that bring me the most satisfaction as an artist; the connection with people and the deep peace that comes while immersed in creating. My work relies on discovering and rediscovering avenues to presence, allowing me to truly see the endless details in the natural world that surround us and to express the inevitable reverence that rises in the face of beauty.
I utilize many materials including precious and non precious metals, resin, and found natural objects to execute the pieces. I love to combine very precise constructed metalwork with natural, messy, imperfect directly cast elements. My deepest desire is for the work to reflect the natural precision in nature and to offer a remembrance that beauty is everywhere. – Stacey Krantz
