Contributor Bio

Erstwhile Jewelery Co-Founder

Alisa inherited a love for gems and antiques from her Russian grandmother with whom she spent weekends treasure-seeking at flea markets. Later she attended Parsons New School for Design studying fashion while honing a skill for branding. Eventually Alisa met Jared, an antique jewelry dealer, who dazzled her with stories of jewelry hunting. As a team they brought the old world to the new and launched Erstwhile in 2010.
