Jessica Haynes makes jewelry for women who believe in the beauty of their own dreams. She started Alice Rise at 38 because despite her fears and doubts, an unfamiliar voice inside her suddenly laid down the law: the time for living like you don’t believe in yourself is over. "Color has the power to change the way we feel. It can remind us that despite our worries and daily stresses, our true nature is joyful, brave, and free. Color can remind us that we are awesomely vibrant beings who need to laugh and dance and feel the sun on our skin. Sometimes we just need a little nudge to remember our own true beauty so we can step into living it more fully. The world is so thirsty for our joy - let’s water the garden." Jessica weaves each piece by hand using only a needle and thread; the process takes many hours to become an heirloom art piece that will last a lifetime. While most are made with contemporary Japanese glass beads and 14k gold, there are limited quantities of rare antique beads from Germany, France, and Italy.
