Alyxia Leaf|Nature Transformed by Craftsmanship
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” -Albert Einstein
Founded in 2008, Alyxia Leaf is an independent business that looks to bring its customers closer to nature that surrounds them everyday. Inspired by the Alyxia leaf, a rare Australian heart-shaped leaf with prominent vein structures, Alyxia Leaf is the result of international friends becoming business partners. We gather beautiful treasures from nature, then preserve them in precious metals to create exquisite objects to wear or display.
Our real leaf jewelry and curios are handcrafted using time-honored methods that took years to develop. Rather than doing a simple mold that can be mass-produced, we bond a layer of metal to the surface of a product through our trade secret electroforming treatment, which leads to the creation of our unique collection. This treatment deposits a fine metallic coating onto our products down to the atomic detail, preserving all of the intricacies of each piece of nature. Our finishes include gold, silver (with a palladium flash to prevent tarnishing), brass, and a wide variety of colorful patinas.
Based out of Brooklyn, you can view our collection by making an appointment, as well as online at www.alyxialeaf.com. During the holidays, we can be found at the Union Square Artisan Market. Alyxia Leaf merchandise all comes with guarantees on craftsmanship, giving you complete assurance of professional quality when supporting our business.
A socially conscious and driven business, Alyxia Leaf believes in giving back, and is always looking for new ways to involve the business with local communities. Charitable causes supported by Alyxia Leaf in the past include Intersections International, Tides Foundation, ITPC Global (a project of Tides Center), GMHC, SF LGBT Center, Institute for Collaborative Education, Apicha Community Health Center, NQAPIA, Soka Gakkai International, and Immigration Equality.
