Work Experience

Fox & Fancy

Creative Director, Co-Founder

Fox & Fancy is a two-lady craft duo who make cunning, beautiful jewellery handcrafted with repurposed leathers, vintage findings, and raw metals. We strive to create affordable, unique pieces that have contemporary relevance with a vintage feel.

We are often inspired by geometry as art, moveable type, fancy dinner parties, and vintage florals. We love handmade papercrafts, merit badges and bunting, ukulele music, wilderness gardens, thrifting, and of course, foxes.

In 2015 the duo split, citing "creative differences"... just kidding! Lisa got into grad school and had to take some time off, and Rachel used the opportunity to go mad with power and create a brand new stationery line - unoffically dubbed "Fox & Fancy Print".

Never fear! You'll still be able to buy Fox & Fancy jewellery in the online shop, and by special order.

The new stationery line will be debuting online and at your favourite local craft shows this winter. In the meantime, you can follow us on facebook, twitter, and instagram for sneak peaks and news updates.
