Hi! I’m Alexa and I’m a Duke student from Queens, New York. I’ve drawn and painted my entire life, but quarantine led me to my favorite medium of art: making jewelry. In summer 2020, I started making beaded jewelry with mushroom beads for myself and my friends. In September, 2020 I started Alexa’s Mushrooms, my jewelry business which operates on both Depop and Instagram. I love watching people express themselves through accessories, and seeing people wear my jewelry has been an extremely rewarding experience.
