Meet the Designer
Hi, I am Alexandra, the founder and head designer of Vibes!
I was born and raised in Nicaragua, and moved to Charlotte, NC in my late 20's. 17 years later, after raising my daughters as a single mom while working 8 to 5 in corporate America, I found myself empty nested and willing to live my life to the fullest. Hence, I decided to risk it all and move to New York City to pursue my dreams as an artist and jewelry designer.
I am a self-taught jewelry designer and abstract artist, and nature and street photographer. However, Vibes is my baby and passion. I started it in 2017 as a creative outlet; however, during my quarantine in 2020, I had enough time to learn more about the business and learn new techniques. The more I learned, and the more pieces I created, the more I loved it, and I saw it as an opportunity to express myself, and to connect with people through my designs. My pieces are like an extension of my personality.
Vibes represent a fresh approach to everyday jewelry, offering handcrafted eye-catching designs that inspire you to feel empowered, beautiful and confident.
Created and operated by a strong and independent woman, the brand presents a jewelry line celebrating what brings the best in you, inspiring you to enjoy life, your own inner beauty, and to surround yourself with beautiful things. Because you deserve it!
I specialize in metal work, and high-quality gemstones and crystals that cultivate positive energy, inspiring you to live life in harmony with yourself, others, and nature. In other words, my intention is to create jewelry that influences how good you feel.
Environmental conservation is another passion of mine. Therefore, my tags, labels, packaging, and jewelry displays are made from 100% recycled, degradable and/or biodegradable materials. No plastic, resins, clay, or mass production. I also spread awareness about planet and wildlife conservation through some of my designs.
In addition, part of my mission is to support local businesses, and women owned small businesses in developing countries. We buy our eco-friendly cotton jewelry pouches from a small women owned business in India, and all of our metal findings, components, charms, metal beads, pendants, etc, are made in the USA by TierraCast, a USA company based in Santa Rosa, CA. Our precious metal supplies are made by another USA company located in Los Angeles, CA. Last but not least, our natural gemstones and crystals are manufactured in Cedar Park, TX.
I wouldn't be able to do this without all of you, so thank you for shopping small and supporting my dream!
I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy making them for you!
Love and light,
