Amerinda Alpern

Amerinda | Portland, OR

I have a passion for designing jewelry that enhances self-expression. At the center of my work is my love of nature and my emotional bond with the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. My work features interpretations of the natural geometry I see all around me – texture and patterns. It’s these patterns of nature I’m drawn to rearrange to my liking. I love working with my hands and the satisfaction of the uniqueness than comes from a handmade object.

Other mediums I explore with are paint, glass and fiber.

From the time I was 5 years old painting to music at art museum class for kids, I was hooked. Decades later after living abroad for a year I earned an BFA from California College of Arts and Crafts. Much later, a MFA in Sculpture. I feel so fortunate to have a life to pursue being a creative being.
