Alicia has always been an entrepreneur at heart. When she was in the fifth grade, Alicia and her best friend started selling friendship bracelets and earrings at local tags sales. In college, she studied metal work, design and painting, which gave her an amazing knowledge base from which to launch her jewelry line, Ali's Collections, in 2010. The design process itself is one of the reasons Alicia decided to take the plunge and begin her own jewelry business, as a seasoned traveler, seeing the world as a constant source of inspiration was something she wanted to experience everyday, not just on trips. Ali's Collection is as unique (and inspiring) as Alicia herself.
