About The Artist
Welcome! I'm Alycia, the designer, creator, and shop-runner of mossNstone. All pieces are hand crafted out of my Southern California studio, using ethically sourced diamonds, and eco friendly gold.
The art of jewelry design and metal fabrication has run in my family for generations. My mother and aunt were also metal fabricators and jewelry designers in the 1970s. They passed down not only their passion for design, but weathered and loved gold smithing tools, technique, and artistry. I have also studied with modern jewelers and branched out into my own passions. I pair the history of traditional metalsmithing techniques, with today's new and modern design capabilities.
I have a passion for simple, clean, and earthy designs that showcase the natural beauty I find in the stones and metal. I love creating engagement rings. I am happily married myself, with a new little one! The symbolism and importance of creating a piece for a proposal and marriage has always been endlessly inspiring to me. I pour my love and passion into every detail of a piece before it is sent off to it's new home for a lifetime of meaning and importance. Each piece I create is heirloom quality, and intended to be passed down through generations.
In addition to designing and creating the pieces, I communicate directly with my customers. Whenever you send an email, or message on instagram, you will reach me personally, and it's a delight for me to communicate with you one-on-one!
Custom orders are the heart and soul of mossNstone. My buyers have inspired me to push my boundaries, and I've created some of the most beautiful pieces when working on a custom piece. If you have something unique you would like to design, you can email me here, to discuss the possibilities.
I source organic, untreated, ethically sourced diamonds. I work directly with small family-run suppliers, where they polish the diamonds themselves. We work closely together to determine the best specimens to be set. All of the rough and polished diamonds are conflict-free, and in compliance with the Kimberley Process. The KP unites administrations, civil societies, and industry in nearly eliminating the flow of conflict diamonds into trades around the world.
All single point accent diamonds are sourced from the Jewelry district in Los Angeles, New Jersey, and New York.
All of my jewelry is crafted exclusively using 100% recycled metals. And every piece is hallmarked with a metal purity stamp (14k).
