Alison is a trained metalsmith whose influences are deeply rooted in the natural world. Raised in the Pacific Northwest and a long time resident of Northern California, she finds endless inspiration in the beauty of these places. When not in her studio you can find her cooking something delicious, hanging out with her dog, tending to her chickens, doing yoga, gardening, or reading a good book. Alison says, "this deep appreciation for nature and the materials it provides guides my creativity and vision for each carefully constructed piece. I utilize traditional metalsmithing techniques to craft a variety of metals, gemstones, shells, and fossils into unique pieces my wearers will be proud to adorn themselves with or gift to their loved ones.
