I had always been one to stand out. My business is no different. I knew from the beginning that I wanted to be transparent with my customers and only deliver authentic, quality products at a great value. I am fully aware that this is not for everyone and that is okay. I believe that my jewelry will resonate with the perfect person. My main priority is to deliver jewelry that makes my customers not only look good, but feel good physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I did not get into this business as a get rich scheme. My motivation is to spread peace, love and positivity into this world one person at a time. Capitalization is a bonus. There are so many motivating reasons behind why I make jewelry. The first is its ties to my native Taino Indian roots. Native Indigenous people are the original jewelry designers with their beaded jewelry and ingenious forms of fashion. I take a lot of pride in my roots and heritage and this is the perfect way to honor and pay homage to my ancestors. My great-grandmother actually beaded her own jewelry until her final days. This was something I did not notice until she recently passed away. I have her beaded jewelry hanging on the rearview mirror of my car, and all around my house. This is my way of keeping her legacy and spirit for many more generations to come.
On top of the familial ties and cultural background, I am also a spiritual person. I believe that the Earth has natural ways of emitting energy. We have all learned in school that we are made of atoms and everything around us is made of atoms and energy. To deny that is to ignorantly deny science and facts. There is energy in humans, plants, animals, and even stones. My mission is to promote peace, love and prosperity so what better way than to combine my passion for fashion and gemstones and combine the two? That is how and why Galleria Alexxis was created!
Stay tuned on how I make my jewelry....
Peace, Love & Positive Vibes,
