Strut Jewelry was founded in 2009 by Alyssa as a response to a lack of modern, affordable & well-crafted jewelry.

Tired of only finding jewelry that was too gaudy to be worn daily, too dated to feel modern, and too expensive to justify purchasing, Alyssa set out to create jewelry she would want to wear, every day.

The result is beautiful, high-quality minimalist jewelry that gets rave reviews because our clients actually wear it!! All the time!! If your jewelry sits in your jewelry box or on you bathroom counter, ask yourself why? Then give our jewels a try.

Hand made in small batches in Alyssa's home studio in Ottawa, Canada using age-old metalsmithing techniques paired with high-grade natural gemstones, the Strut Jewelry team offers beautiful contemporary jewelry that you won't want to take off.
