Fed up with working in menial, uninteresting, stifling jobs, Alycia stepped out of the rat race, invested time, money, and dedication towards starting lexi lou jewels. With inspirations ranging from contemporary jewelry design, to a particularly curly leaf seen on a hike in the forest, you just never know what will show up in the lexi lou catalog next.
Her process of taking her (and your) images and making them into durable jewelry is what makes lexi lou special. It isn’t necessarily what a jeweler thinks that their customers like, it is about what you and every other individual wants, what is directly important to you. Each photograph is transferred onto an aluminum pendant, accented with vintage Swarovski jewels and hung from an oxidized sterling silver chain. These durable keepsakes will be passed on for generations.
Here, in her own words Alycia will tell you about her inspirations:
I have always loved photographs and recently fell hard for old tin type photos. Lexi lou jewels combines those two loves to create the modern day locket. Traveling and the outdoors are my biggest inspirations. All jewelry is hand made in my home, overlooking a beautiful lake.
