Hi, I’m Allison (and that's Penny). I love making jewelry because it allows me to get creative with colors, metals, techniques, patterns, and stones. I’ve lived my entire life in Alaska, and because of that, I have a lot of Alaskan influence in my work. Many of the patterns and colors I use come straight from nature. The culture here, wildlife, flowers, and everything else that we’re so lucky to have surrounding us is really an endless supply of inspiration for me.
I started beading for fun when I was little and gradually turned it into my primary artistic outlet. I find it very meditative to sit and weave hundreds of beads or spend hours making tiny changes to a silver setting. It’s time when I can let my mind wander and also be devoting all my attention to this very detailed task right in front of me.
