Exploration of color and form are the heart of my work. From natural landscapes to modern industrial design, I am inspired by the relatable beauty found in everyday sights and objects. I see jewelry as emblematic, a meaningful way to mark milestones and moments, symbolic of the many transitions throughout our lives. My work is created by hand with the intention of making pieces that inspire and endure. In addition to my core enamel and silver lines, I enjoy creating one-of-a-kind (or sometimes, a limited run) pieces using stones and precious metals.
Seeking creative refuge from Seattle’s dotcom grind, Alisha signed up for a variety of metalsmithing and enamel classes at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, WA and was immediately hooked. From there, she began working for local jewelers and honing her skills with the dream of producing her own line of distinctive, handmade jewelry. She lives with her husband, daughter and enormous dog in Portland, OR.
