Featured etsy artist and seller - Contempojewelry by Staci Egan

I would like to introduce you to Staci Egan owner of Contempojewelry etsy shop, a jewelry designer with great talent and taste

Contempo Jewelry features nature inspired designs reflective of the lush landscape and colorful foliage of Central Pennsylvania. Staci specializes in wire working techniques incorporating precious metals, semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls into her designs. Each individual piece is designed & hand crafted by her. She offers superior customer service and guarantees quality work. Designing custom wedding & bridal jewelry for clients is also one of her favorites.  
"It is an honor to play a small part in someone's special day" says Staci
Nothing is more rewarding for her than collaborating with her brides, listening to their wants and needs, then developing an original design specifically for them. 

"I find manipulating wire to be extremely relaxing. The material can be very forgiving, while creatively allowing endless possibilities. I have dabbled in other mediums like glass, metal forging, pottery, precious metal clay, stained glass and bead stitching... But I always find myself coming back to play with wire. " (Staci Egan)

Contempo Jewelry began in 1999. Staci work has been displayed at the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts and the Guild of Craftsmen Winter Craft Market. She was also one of the founding members of the Surface Artist Cooperative in State College. In October, 2011 she opened the Contempo Artisan Boutique. It is a quaint little boutique located in the historic village of Boalsburg, PA. She shares her space with other local and regional art and craft. You can find jewelry, photography, furniture, pottery, fiber art, stationery, bath and body products, and original artwork at her boutique. She also offers classes, camps, and meeting spaces for your creative personality. 


In 2010 I was published in "The Best of Jewelry Artists" for my pea pod jewelry.
In 2012 I had a bracelet worn on the red carpet for the 84th Academy Awards by the wife of Erik Nash - visual effect for "Reel Steal".
