Calliope Jewelry 

In Greek mythology, Calliope was the muse of epic poetry and rhythm, daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne, and is believed to be Homer’s muse for the Illiad and the Odyssey. The meaning of Calliope is “beautiful voice”. We strive to instill rhythm and poetry into each piece of jewelry we create.

Artist Alena Fisse-Karr is the creative force behind Seattle-based Calliope Jewelry. With an eye for elegance, composition and style, she brings you the Pools of Light and Shades of Grace collections.

Calliope Jewelry is the union of Alena’s love for nature and her many years of experience making art. She has had formal training in metalsmithing, wire wrapping, design, and photography and has studied jewelry making under artists around the world from Seattle to Bali. Her goal is to make jewelry that is timeless yet modern, whimsical yet sophisticated.
