The Interview — Alexa Leigh, Founder of Alexa Leigh

Founder of Alexa Leigh

Alexa Mufson is a jewelry designer, creative director, and mom. After leaving the mountains of Aspen Colorado, she founded Alexa Leigh in 2010 with the notion of creating sentimental value behind every piece. Alexa’s vision was to cultivate a jewelry line that could be worn every day while maintaining a prominent organic and timeless presence. The collection started with double pendant necklaces that are worn with one pendant in front and one at the nape of your neck and has expanded to cuffs, rings, bracelets, and anklets, all of which manifest Alexa Leigh’s vision. From simple 14k gold necklaces with various diamond options to stackable black rhodium rings, Alexa's jewelry is a modern twist on simplicity. Each piece can be worn separately or layered together and add the perfect touch to any outfit. Alexa's jewelry has been seen on many celebrities such as Miranda Kerr, Ashley Tisdale and she is also very popular among the top fashion bloggers. For more on Alexa, check out her Instagram!
