“Love this lady, her personality, knowledge of the stones and materials she uses. Always has a smile for you. She loves when people stop and admire her beautiful work. She can make the chains longer or shorter, she will even mail items to you. Love the person.”
“Alison took my design idea and made it happen in less than a week. Can’t beat this type of creativity, skill, customer service and friendship! All for a more than reasonable price! Thanks so much.”

“Alison, thank you again for the story about the dragonflies when I saw you Sunday in Westerly. I have told a few people about our encounter and your story and how it all ties together, they all got goosebumps. I can’t wait until my sister receives the dragonfly necklace. The whole experience on Sunday was serendipitous! Looking forward to your next show.”
“I attend the Litchfield Farmer’s Market on a year-round basis. Several years ago, during a winter market a guest vendor was in attendance — Alison Designs Jewelry. I had never seen this vendor before, but I absolutely fell in love with the pieces this talented woman designed. Sitting before me on her table were semi-precious gems, crystals, and sterling. Standing to the side of the table was one of the most talented and creative women I had ever met.
“That day after carefully examining many pieces I settled on purchasing a sterling mermaid necklace with small pieces of turquoise and some unique sterling silver earrings with turquoise and lapis in a nested hoop design. These two pieces changed my perspective on jewelry and brought not only beauty into my life, but an amazing person and friend as well.
“Over the years I have purchased many pieces from Alison — I can’t NOT buy something from this woman when I see how she strives to create unique and vibrant items that scream “one of a kind.” At this point, the vast majority of jewelry I own is crafted by Alison.
“You will never be disappointed in a piece that you purchase from Alison — she stands behind her work and guarantees it — whether you have an intricate piece with many stones or crystals or a simple You and Me necklace. She will custom design pieces for you — I often hear her saying about her process that she sees someone’s face as she designs a piece; she will very often make one-of-a-kind pieces. If you too are one of a kind, you need to visit her at an event or in her backyard studio to make a purchase.”

“As usual Alison’s designs are beautiful, and she is a delight to work with!
“I’ve been an admirer & purchaser of Alison Designs since she first began making jewelry in 2000. I have attended many of her shows until I moved to Florida. Although I miss being close by, I still check her website for her new designs. My collection of her gemstone and pearls fills my jewelry box and I’m always adding more. I cannot get enough of her creations!! Alison is a talented, smart and beautiful businesswoman. I will always be a big fan!”

“Ten years ago, I met Alison and loved the jewelry she displayed. My first purchase was a dragonfly necklace. I lost my brother not long before meeting Alison and dragonflies were a significant symbol of him. Since then, I have purchased many pieces and it’s not often that I wear something she didn’t design. Alison designs all of her jewelry and will also take custom orders; she uses quality materials and hand selects the stones and silver herself. She is an absolute pleasure to work with.”

Alison’s passion for jewelry is reflected in her designs and each creation is a labor of love. She has become my personal jeweler because she sincerely cares about her customers and always puts them first. When I wear one of her pieces, it brings out my inner beauty and makes me feel like a princess. I think you will feel the same way. You’ll also love all the compliments you receive!”

Alison is very knowledgeable, has a wonderful personality and makes people feel as if they are family. She is able to fulfill requests every time and her jewelry is high quality and quite beautiful! Alison is amazing!

I have been buying jewelry from Alison for almost twenty years. Not only is she wonderfully talented at her craft, she is also a wonderful person and is engaged with her clients. In 2005 she consulted with my oldest daughter and created the jewelry for her wedding.
My youngest daughter has a creative spirit and Alison knows what she might like and has created some wonderful earrings for her.
If a piece needs to be repaired from being lovingly worn Alison is very accommodating with repairs.
I am so happy I met Alison all those years ago at a craft fair. She has made wonderful connections with me and many of my friends and family members. XOXO
