Jacquie Aiche attributes the distinctive nature of her designs to her upbringing. Raised in a family with two diverse cultural influences (her father is Egyptian and her mother is an American Indian), she often blends elements of the two. “From my Father I think I have come to love reworking ancient designs such as goddesses and amulets and hammered gold, integrating these forms with contrasting natural minerals and gemstones, turquoise and fossils which are all reminiscent of the Native American jewelry of my mother’s heritage. Then of course, there is that funky, whimsical element that is all my own. She loves to travel the world in her constant search for new inspiration and unusual materials to incorporate into her work. Her personal perfection is reflected in the expert craftsmanship of each piece. Handcrafted in the United States or India, her jewelry is not only beautiful but also durable and comes with a warranty.
