At the bench...

Tinkering with craft and jewelry began for Baleigh Acebo as a wee adolescent growing up in the lush green mountains of Vermont. After pursuing a BFA in Creative Writing she realized she had made a terrible mistake on a very expensive education because what she wanted to do was work with her hands.  She then enrolled in the North Bennet Street School’s Jewelry Making & Repair program in Bahston, MA and everything was good again. Baleigh was technically trained to craft her own tools, fabricate intricate pieces from scratch, handset diamonds & precious gems and repair fine jewelry.

As a process jeweler, Baleigh is turned on from the problem solving involved in designing intricate pieces and setting weird stones.  Her work employs bold colors, clean lines and lots of geometry.

Baleigh can be found teaching super fun and awesome metalsmithing and stone setting workshops in Colorado and across the US.  She works out of her home studio in Denver, Colorado that she shares with her talented hubs Alex Boyd, along with their 3 adorable floofs.
