Nancey Brackett owned and operated a horse farm for thirty-three years in Canton, NY., and upon retiring turned to another passion. Her grandmother was a gifted silversmith and passed on the love of silver, and the desire to be creative. While on the farm, Nancey took some silver work classes, and started to play with wire and bezel setting stones.
After selling the farm, a three-week intensive jewelry class at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico introduced her to the art of channel inlay, and cutting her own stones. She returned to New York and set up My Corner Studio. Nancey has since returned to Ghost Ranch for a more advanced course, and spent time in Tucson at a Gem and Lapidary Club learning new techniques. She attends the Tucson International Gem show, the largest in the world, each year to buy stones and slabs for inlay.
You can check out her website, mycornerstudiosilver.com, find her at local art shows, and follow her on at mycornerstudio on Facebook and Instagram. The studio is open by appointment, and in November each year for the St. Lawrence County Studio Tour.
