My experience of interviewing Alyssa Spaxman was comparable to making a new friend – fun, carefree, and interesting.  When I first met Alyssa at her home, she projected an immediately welcoming presence filling up the small space around us with conversation and questions.  She was excited for the interview and the more we talked, the more I wanted to know about her and her art.  Alyssa’s company, Strut Jewelry is homegrown and only sells homemade goods, each piece is delightfully unique and carries with it an air of mystery.  The pieces are constructed using metal, crystals, and even shells that Alyssa picks up while travelling; she strives to make every one of her products special by imbuing them with her sense of heart and a touch of wanderlust.
