Our Story

Dragonfly Designs: Where Creativity Meets Fun!

Hi, I’m Stacee Gillelen, mother of four, artist, and founder of Dragonfly Designs. After my second daughter was born, I left my career in banking to focus on raising my children while pursuing a degree in social work. Then, by chance, I fell in love with the art of jewelry making, and found that I just couldn’t stop spreading the joy of it to others.

The parties, classes, and camps we offer grew naturally out of sharing my passion for unique, custom jewelry, with family and friends. What began as a retail and wholesale jewelry business has evolved into a holistic expression of my commitments to art education, social justice, and philanthropy. Plus, it’s a whole lot of fun!

As our team and mission have grown, we’ve been blessed to share many forms of art with many awesome students. In addition to jewelry, we now teach an ever-expanding list of disciplines including art exploration, painting, textiles, dance and yoga, and organic gardening.

We’ve also expanded the languages in which our classes and camps are taught to Spanish and Mandarin. I’ve seen just how beneficial language immersion has been for broadening my own children’s worldview, and I’m excited to provide bilingual camps to engage children with a new language.

I invite you to experience one of our parties, classes, private events, or camps. Your children and guests will thank you, we promise!

Need additional information, or have a custom event in mind? Give me a call! I’d love to tell you more about fun, fabulous, and memorable experiences from Dragonfly Designs.
