Alissa Warshaw is a jewelry designer and fine artist. She was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Her organic aesthetic is inspired by the many walks she took as a child on the rocky beaches of Puget Sound, taking in the textures, colors, sounds and visuals of the water, the sky, clouds, and a landscape filled with trees and mountains. This, followed by many years in New York City, has imbued her work with a compelling energy that marries the beauty of nature with the vibrancy of city living.
Each piece is meticulously handmade from start to finish by the artist in her DTLA Arts District studio, in a palette of sterling silver, 14k. gold fill, 14k. and 18k. gold. The collection celebrates the interplay between shadow and light, matte and polished, smooth and patterned, refined and rustic. The jewelry is complemented by handmade art objects that speak to the desire for tangible connection in an increasingly virtual world.
