Alejandra is the owner and creator of Kelkay Jewellery. Originally from Chile, she migrated to Australia with her husband and daughter for a better life: “I love making jewellery; It makes me happy, making others happy”. Alejandra has always loved making things with her hands, she perfected her jewellery making skills in Singapore where she lived for a time under the tuition of a local teacher.
Kelkay is the indigenous Chilean word for Necklace. Alejandra’s eclectic designs are also inspired by the traditional jewellery from Chile and Latin America and Frida Kahlo is a particular inspiration. The materials she uses include: aluminium; copper; lapis lazuli; and recycled materials (coffee cups; cardboard and rubber inner tube from bicycles). Alejandra likes to share her passion for jewellery by teaching others; “I love creating jewellery with recycled materials or mix my own designs using colours and patterns inspired in my country; Mexico or Latin America”.
Alejandra’s range includes: necklaces; bracelets; rings and earrings. All are made from flexible and hypo-allergenic materials.
