Alexandra Dodds BFA
“Whitecliffe expanded and challenged the way I thought about making my art, while also being incredibly encouraging,” says jeweller Alexandra Dodds.
Currently based in Vancouver, Alexandra sells her Alexandra Dodds Jewellery line through New Zealand and Canadian boutiques, as well as online (alexandradodds.com).
“My jewellery is starting to attract attention. It has been featured in publications such as Vogue and NZ Fashion Quarterly and occasionally requested by celebrity stylists.”
Jewellery wasn’t what Alexandra had in mind when she started Fine Arts at Whitecliffe; she was looking for the freedom to create without being confined by a specific medium.
“One of the most important things I learned at Whitecliffe is that there is no right or wrong way to make your art. You just have to find your thing and keep on making.”
More recently she has been refining her metal smith skills by attending workshops here and in Europe, and continuing to experiment and create.
