Sylvie Lissa Alusitz grew up in close proximity to New York City to two artist parents. At a young age, she was encouraged to explore art and had the ability to foster her creative skills and mind. She was exposed to the eccentricities, art, and culture that NYC had to offer. Sylvie draws inspiration from her upbringing and the world around her to create jewelry, as well as small and large-scale sculpture. She is drawn to the process of making and pushes preconceived notions of what is wearable in her jewelry design.
