Hello everyone. I’m so glad I stumbled upon this group. You folks
seem like an awesome bunch I’m your basic rookie who has completed
a few semesters of metalsmithing classes with jeweler Suzan Rezac. I
have learned so much from her, and have been avidly making pieces at
home with minimal equipment. Got a lot to learn, and now hopefully
have a little bit to share.

Alexandra Shariff Designs are the work of Gaynor Mann.
I am first, and foremost a wife and mother. To illustrate this
point, my company is named after my daughters, Alexandra, 15 and
Shariff, (Sha-reef) 20. Why the youngest first? She frequently helps
me with design. I love her eye for color, plus it helps me cultivate
the artist in her. Now if I could just convince her that she needs to
learn construction! What contribution does my eldest make? She,
enthusiastically, advertises my work by wearing any of the pieces I
make for her!
While I have spent the majority of my life in some artistic pursuit,
I only started using metal six years ago. What I discovered is that
I love it! I find myself getting lost, mentally, in all the design
I am constantly striving to learn new techniques and this is
reflected in my work. Once I learn something, I will create a number
of pieces, in order to perfect the technique.
