Handmade and local
Every piece is handmade by me, Alicia, in my Iowa City studio.
I handcraft Bespoke, limited edition and one-of-a-kind pieces by infusing my unique designs with traditional techniques that were handed down to me by my father and elders. With integrity and authenticity, I can celebrate craftmanship while preserving my culture.
My semi-precious stones are responsibly sourced and handpicked by me. Every stone is locally hunted, cut, and polished by independent lapidarists from Idaho, Oklahoma, and Arizona.
Protecting the environment is especially important to me and my family. That is why I create with intention. I reuse and recycle everything I possibly can. I design using traditional techniques and limited quantity to avoid excessive waste associated with other form of production. Most of my packaging is made up of recycled materials and every piece is made by hand in my Iowa studio.
My ethical responsibility
As I continue to grow, I am always finding new ways to improve my carbon footprint. My mission is to hold myself to the highest standards of clean production by:
- Using recycled packaging
- I'd rather fix something then replace it
- Reducing, reusing and recycling everything as much as possible
- Hand making each piece in the USA
- Using recycled metals/materials in all my accessories wherever possible.
