J. Alexander is owned and operated by Dallas based interior designer Jason Lenox. Jason had long wanted a line similar to this for his retail store, Anteks Home Furnishings. Not being able to find what he wanted in the traditional gift and accessories markets, he set out to design his own.
His products are crafted from German silver: an alloy containing nickel and copper with each piece being handmade and hand finished. They have a substantial heft and feel solid in your hand. With an applied “vintage finish”, these items look like they could have passed thru a trading post at some point in their past
J. Alexander Rustic Silver items are made one at a time. Each piece is crafted and hand tooled by artisans using techniques that have been around for generations. Each J. Alexander Silver piece will be slightly unique and has a finish that looks somewhat vintage. The turquoise used is hand selected at their shop in Dallas and only the best stones make it onto their products. Their inspiration comes from the work of classic Navajo silversmiths from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
