Aleksandra is a recognized jeweler with a unique sense of style, flair, and a well-defined signature that carries through all her wearable sculptures. She has over 25 years of professional art and teaching experience.
Aleksandra’s aesthetic philosophy is anchored in real feelings and raw emotion expressed through dynamic forms, carved into metal. She reconstructs metal surfaces, experiments with contrasts and shifts balance points, to achieve a sense of movement in her compositions. Her design interests are global and reflect cultural diversity.
In addition to jewelry creation, Aleksandra is an accomplished ceramics artist and sculptor. She channeled her skills of working with clay into jewelry through carving, casting and smithing. Intrigued by the complexity of edges, textures and mixed materials, she works with gold and silver to explore the three-dimensional forms and adds accents with pearls and lava, silk and coral, diamonds and raw stones.
Aleksandra's exceptional work has been acknowledged with national awards and featured in international publications and exhibits, including Craft Forms, Evansville Museum and NICHE awards in multiple categories. Her work is also featured in permanent collections at numerous museums.
Teaching has become another gratifying outlet for her energy and creativity. She emphasizes rigorous attention to detail and provides ample opportunities for skill honing and self-expression.

Please look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!
Please note that ALL images sent to the website are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! If your images don't get posted they do not meet crafthaus quality standards. Please review the photo guidelines under the FAQ tab.
If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor at live dot com, I will do my best to be of help.
I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.
