"She believed she could, so she did"
Hi, I'm Alex and I'm the person behind AKA. Creating jewelry has been a life long creative outlet but it ultimately turned into a necessity after some major life changes... I got married and moved to a small rural community in Saskatchewan where job opportunities were limited. I had always dreamed of being a business owner, but never thought it was a realistic option for my life.
With the support and encouragement from my Husband, Family & Friends, Alexandra Kathlyn Accessories was born and my dreams started to become reality.
I design & create jewelry inspired by everyday women, using genuine gemstones (never faux or synthetic gems). Everything is lovingly and intentionally handmade, in my small studio in Nipawin, Saskatchewan. Each piece in the collection is made in small quantities so they are purposefully and carefully made.
I take great pride in my work because AKA is more than just jewelry, I believe in the empowerment of women and that our purchases have the ability to change lives.
I'm also a firm believer that all women matter exactly as they are. My hope is to empower women by creating wearable reminders that like gemstones, you are perfectly imperfect, one-of-a-kind and incomparable.
Throughout the year I will continue to work on more products and, as always, look forward to sharing all of them with you! I hope you enjoy the newest pieces! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or suggestions you may have.
