I've been drawing jewelry since I could first pick up a pencil, but what made me really fall in love with the industry wasn't the designing or the jewelry, itself. It was the artistry, the detail, and all the craftsmanship it takes to create each piece. I see so much magic in a traditionally hand crafted piece, which is why I created Alyssa & Anna. No matter how simple or intricate, I want each of our designs to be a work of art. So, this spring, I will be traveling to Paris to study the art of High Jewelry. Until then, to keep my creative juices flowing, I've decided to traditionally hand render "A Jewelry Design A Day." We're not interested in being the average, independent jeweler. We want to be something greater, and we want to preserve craftsmanship.
