Baleigh Acebo has tinkered with craft and jewelry since she was a wee adolescent. 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 and precious gems and repair fine jewelry.
Baleigh is a process jeweler and gets turned on from the problem solving involved in designing intricate pieces and setting weird stones. Her work employs clean lines, industrial elements and graceful geometry that she finds inspiring from everyday design. Baleigh works out of her home studio that she shares with her hubs Alex, along with their 3 adorable floofs.
Baleigh also moonlights as the head jewel-slinger, fixer & instructor at Balefire Goods.
