Dixie Stanton has been a studio jeweler for 38 years, working on commission and for galleries in the Northwest and throughout the country. For 31 years, she has participated in the Pacific Northwest Art and Crafts Fair at the Bellevue Art Museum, and has been invited to exhibit in the Northwest Designer Craftsmen exhibits, Tacoma Art Museum, Governor’s Gallery Invitational, and North American Cultural Institute in San Jose, Costa Rica. She has won numerous awards.

Dixie is a member of the Society of North American Goldsmiths, Seattle Metals Guild and Northwest Designer Craftsmen Association. She is featured in the recently published retrospective of Northwest Designer Craftsmen at 50, Looking Forward, Glancing Back.

Dixie’s style is contemporary, using silver and gold, sometimes combined with rare trading beads from around the world or semi-precious stones, in necklaces, bracelets, earrings and pins.

It gives me great joy to produce pieces of jewelry which reflect my primary objectives of strength, beauty and wearability. I believe my pieces make a strong statement and that the individual wearing them feels enhanced by the wearing. Above all, I have the deepest respect for good craftsmanship. In the years of developing my own craft, I keep that standard foremost.
