Maria Alejandra arenas
Maria Alejandra lives in Miami with her family. While pursuing her degree in Communications at FIU, she explored her creativity by taking metalsmith and visual art classes. She further discovered that working with metal was a natural process for her and since then she has never stopped learning and acquiring new skills in jewelry arts.
As a mom of a little boy, she loves working with kids and youth. Maria Alejandra finds it very rewarding to teach jewelry making and see young kids increase self-confidence and joy when they create a piece of jewelry with their own hands. She is part of the JCW maker community and is currently working on developing her own line of jewelry.
