Alison has been collection rocks & making art for as long as she can remember. She began working in metal as a jewelry artist in 2009 and found her true passion when she realized she could combine her two loves. Alison pulls inspiration from both organic & geometric forms. Colors & textures she discovers in nature are a constant source of stimulation for her design process. Alison hand-fabricates all of her pieces using metalsmithing techniques such as soldering, fold forming, etching, keum-boo & enameling.
Alison studied metals under Margo Manning at Delgado Community College. She has continued her jewelry education by taking workshops from master enamelists & studying at Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts.
