Alice grew up in the former copper mining, now artist community of Jerome, Arizona. This unique childhood, immersed in a world of artistic individuals, instilled in her heart the beauty of living a creative life. Alice made her first earrings out of old copper Jerome rain gutters and has since repurposed antique copper for all of her unique creations. She is very passionate about the renewal that occurs when she encounters a discarded piece of antique industrial copper and converts it to a lovely ornamental piece of jewelry that beautifies its wearer. Rich, varying patinas in her work reflect her deep love for the southwest and a heavy influence by Native American turquoise. Alice embraces a classic repoussé hammering technique, using the stump of a 100-year-old tree from the home where she grew up in Jerome. Upon encountering the sweet, fiery beauty of Alice's work, one catches a glimpse into her unique personality.
