Artist Alena Fisse-Karr has enjoyed creating wearable art since childhood. She knew she had found her passion after creating her first piece of "grown up" jewelry. Since then she has studied under jewelry artists around the world, from Bali to Seattle.
Alena is fascinated by textures, colors and facets of light seen in the world around her and she often finds inspiration from the beauty in often unnoticed details, like shapes in woodgrain and coffee foam.
With an eye for elegance, composition and style, Alena allows the creative process to transport her for hours as her hands seem to naturally shape designs. Her goal with her jewelry line, Calliope, is to make jewelry that is timeless yet modern, whimsical yet sophisticated.
