Alaina Clarke is a metalsmith based out of Grand Rapids, MI. Trixie & Stella is a new collection that debuted in September of 2017. Trixie & Stella are Alaina and her best friend's alter egos from High School. The egos became an inside joke between the two as they grew into adulthood of being a Mother of three (Trixie) and an active, single, professional (Stella). What started out as a 30th birthday present to Trixie, spun into an entire jewelry line inspired by their lifestyles.
Now, almost 2 years later, the collection has come to fruition in collaboration with local GR women-owned businesses. It's very important to Alaina to work with and support local female businesses. With that in mind, she set out to work with those who had the same vision and ideas as she.
