About

Alari Jewelry - The Silver Smith meets the Mad Scientist!

I have always been a maker. From an early age I beaded, photographed, crocheted, designed, and planned. Now in my third career as a full-time jewelry artist I have found myself, peace, and joy. It gives me great pleasure to work on pieces for others.

I find myself drawn to organic forms, raw natural gemstones, fused and hammered metals, simple and complex. Perfection in the not so perfect. My most "finished" pieces of jewelry will always show marks from the hands that make it. Some of mankind's earliest pieces of art were beads and other forms of jewelry. I proudly join in this line of craftspeople that help themselves and others express their individuality through adornment.

In constructing jewelry I make use of both the simple and exotic techniques in my jewelry creation.

I pay attention to function as well as form - much of my jewelry seems rather simple in construction but much energy has been put into ensuring the piece “works,” earrings need to hang right, pendants need to lay right, and everything has to be durable.

I want you to be happy with your jewelry from the least expensive to the most complex. My team and I pride ourselves on customer support and just plain good work.

All of my jewelry has a life-time guarantee on workmanship.
