Jameka Purdie – Alter Ego Designs

My first experience making jewelry was at a birthday party when I was about 8 years old. I have come a long way from yarn and pony beads. However, my desire to create is just as strong today.

I put a lot of time, effort, and care into crafting necklaces, earrings, bracelets, hair accessories and more. All of my creations are assembled using quality components sourced from all around the world. Most of my designs are one-of-a-kind, but even duplicates are each unique with the character only handmade items possess.

I find jewelry making to be a creative outlet that allows me to step away from normal daily activities and become something more than myself. I believe the individuality and boldness of my designs can do the same for those who wear them.

We all need an ALTER EGO sometimes!
