Lexi Butler Designs
Lexi Butler Designs is a handmade jewelry business based in the Rocky Mountains in Missoula Montana, USA. Originally I was born into a German jewelry making family and grew up in my Fathers business learning to be around tools from a very early age. I developed and followed my passion to do something creative in life with metal and gemstones and became a goldsmith/jewelry designer in 1986. I worked for many years in my father's business designing and making high carat gold and gemstone jewelry.
I met the love of my life from Iowa in Germany a few years later, became pregnant, got married lived in Germany for a total of six years. In August 1996 our little family including my tools immigrated to Montana. Raising our children ( a boy and a girl) the old fashion way, I stayed home and delayed my career until it was time for our youngest to go to first grade. Then I became a US Citizen in 2007
When I started to make jewelry in 2008 my interests shifted at first to making beaded jewelry. I read books and acquired many different jewelry making techniques along the way, besides smithing. I incorporate many different jewelry-making techniques into my individual one of its kind design. I love being creative, using my hands to create works of art and creating something that someone, somewhere in the world will love to wear!
At first, I sold to family, members then craft shows, meanwhile I learned a lot about building websites, domains, etc and In 2016 I relaunched my business under Lexi Butler Designs Today Lexi Butler Designs are made from the highest quality materials and are one of a kind, as I like to create unique pieces all the time! I am a proud member of The Artisan Group and have had the opportunity to have my work featured on TV Shows Jane The Virgin and Riverdale.
