Herringbone texture Series
a jewelry collection inspired by textile patterns
The herringbone pattern found in woven textiles became the initial seed for this collection. To achieve this effect in metal Alexia uses her favorite cross-peen hammer to individually texture bars of metal. The pieces are then cut to length and inlayed in silver enclosures of various shapes and sizes. The copper offers a rich and warm reflective surface that patinas beautifully as the jewelry is worn, highlighting the textural effect of the hammer-work further.
Inlaying a Cufflink collection
Alexia started making cufflinks for her father when she first learned jewelry making at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Over the years she has developed a variety of inlay techniques using an array of materials like hardwood, hand-textured copper pieces and cement to create an exciting collection of original contemporary cufflinks, a staple in men’s jewelry.
