She's got groove, a free spirit and bright smile. Introducing the newest member of the Elizabeth Sarah Collections family, is Alex Van Cleave! Alex is a natural leader with an old soul, yet she brings fresh ideas and talent to the table.
With the recent expansion of our new store in Atlantic Beach last October, the team has taken on tons of new work and commissions. We quickly realized that in order keep production at its new steady rate, the three amigos (myself, Elizabeth and Philip) decided we need to get back to our roots and designate more studio time. Now we just needed to somehow be in two places at once to also keep the gallery open 6 days a week.
Of course, every business wants the right fit when looking for new employees, but being a small company that's more like family, we also were looking for someone who wanted to grow with us.
And just like that, Alex came in for an interview and there was no looking back!
Starting with the team in mid-February, Alex has already taken on new tasks with ease and grace (if you know Boo and myself, we can't always say the same for us.)
Alex is originally from Nashville, and though she's moved around several times, she now calls Atlantic Beach home. She loves thrifting, dancing at oceanside dj sets, and of course learning about our crazy world of art and jewelry.
You can find Alex at the gallery 3-4 days a week, handling Philips inventory, styling jewelry and keeping you all in the know via social media.
We are so excited to have her on our side and can't wait to see what the future holds!
