Patterned Jeweler
Miami, FL

"My process is always pen, or in this case, pencil and paper. I have to sketch everything out beforehand –– once that's done, I make sure I have all the right components before transforming my sketch into a piece of bold, bohemian jewelry."

Alaire finds happiness in a lot of things –– industrial objects, vintage finds, and making things ever-so-slightly dramatic, for starters. As one could imagine, these interests all roll together quite nicely into the trade of jewelry-making. She loves transforming simple geometric shapes into stunning statement pieces, just by adding artfully-arranged, hand-stamped or painted patterns. In this way, Alaire incorporates many of the industrial and vintage elements that she loves, with just a little bit of drama. She sketches and then builds. And you know what? That makes her happy too.
