A series by Alexa Horton
My intuition has always been my true north. I am formally trained as both a dancer and an architect and informally as a student of art and design; these life experiences inform all the pieces that I create. I do not recall the exact moment that I decided to exclusively focus on dance nor do I remember the leap that I took to study architecture. I do know that there has always been a resolute clarity of what comes next at each phase of my life.
"There is a continuum in my artistic endeavors that has guided me to designing and making jewelry."
Much like learning choreography or designing a space, the process of making my jewelry is the true reward.
'i seira', translated from Greek, means a series, a catalog.
"My i seira is a series of fine jewelry that is the culmination of all the artistic experiences of my life."
Each piece of my jewelry is handmade using ancient goldsmithing and lost wax carving techniques and I favor the color and luster of high carat gold. In all types of design, my aesthetic remains consistent…I veer towards the understated but always with a twist. Often inspired by art and architecture, my hope is that my work feels both modern and ancient…sculptural and refined…elegant and easy to wear. I am a subscriber of the idea of quality over quantity and believe in collecting pieces to be worn forever.
