Martini’s Fire is a result of the passion and enthusiasm Alexandra Martini has for creating art from the inspirational natural wonders around her. After receiving a Bachelor of fine arts in Graphic design at Massachusetts College of Art she followed her curiosity for gemstones to a Graduate Gemologist degree and a Jewelry Design Diploma from GIA London and Florence Italy continuing on to complete almost every course available. She studied voraciously, and eventually became an instructor at that same institution years later. In the 17+ years that she has been involved in gemology and jewelry, her work has taken her from diamond and gold mines in Venezuela, gem dealers in Nigeria, Colombia and India, to fancy diamond dealers in Tel Aviv. She has a keen eye for gems, that combined with her knowledge of design and fine arts allows her to successfully design those special pieces. She has designed complete debut collections for new jewellery brands, managed production, and sold million dollar watches for high end brands.
In Iceland she fell in love with her surroundings and decided to make her own mark on the jewelry world, with an ethical twist. Her current pieces are inspired by aerial views of Icelandic rivers, as well as the Northern lights using gemstones to tell the story in many of her pieces. She works with small communities around the world to help empower them to stay current and viable through the changing globalization in the market. She believes in her heart that you can create a beautiful, meaningful product, be successful and still conduct yourself with the utmost social responsibility, environmental awareness.
Alexandra has a fire inside to stay on that path and bring some positivity to the industry.
