This is beautiful and so lightweight that I hardly know that I'm wearing it. The colors remind me of the ocean and is perfect for the warm summer months!
The Alchemist's Alchemy
The word alchemy means to turn something common into something extraordinary. Alixandra of The Alchemists Vessel strives to turn the mundane into extraordinary and beautiful, wearable art. Fascinated with color and texture she tries to let the elements inspire the creation instead of forcing them to be something. Born from necessity, The Alchemists Vessel came into being because the hobby had overrun the house. Alixandra began making jewelry in 2004 to pass the snowy winter months, by 2005 she had become so enamored with the process that she began to teach herself different techniques and to use different materials. Eight years later she is a Certified Jewelry Designer and Repair Technician. Yes, they have classes for that. She has found outside employment as a Jewelry-Making Instructor at Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts, as well as private Group and Club lessons.
As the sole proprietor Alixandra does everything from answering the phone and taking custom orders, and creating them, to running the package to the post office and everything in between.
Each item at The Alchemists Vessel is made with meticulous care and attention to detail. Jump Rings are hand spun, cut or sawed, and assembled into the beautiful chainmaille pieces she has on offer. Gemstones are hand set or mounted, chain is polished and made to shine. On occasion a vintage piece or Estate piece of jewelry will be available, Alixandra has usually "up-cycled" these pieces, repaired, or re-designed them in their entirety for a completely new piece.
Alixandra is also the owner and operator of Little Shop of Artists, a retail venue for local artists in Boise, Idaho to display and sell their wares. She is also the author of "In Chains", a forthcoming e-book with 18 fun projects for you to make.
