About Alex Woo - Travel

Not content to dream about faraway places, each year Alex Woo ensures travel is a vital aspect of her jewelry design and creative process. With a passion for travel that began at a very early age, she has been fortunate enough to have visited some of the top cities, hotels, and destinations around the world.

“I read fashion magazines to see what the new colors and styles are, however traveling and the study of different architectural styles, the essence of a city… I assimilate all that in my mind, and then synthesize it into my designs. That is what stirs my imagination.”

Whether it is a new environment of one that is familiar, Alex Woo looks for new sights and experiences for both inspiration and to fuel her wanderlust.

“From walking outside on the city streets of New York, to a trail of mountains of Rio de Janiero… a zen garden in Kyoto… a market in Istanbul… or at a museum in Paris… To be creative, you have to go where your mind can relax so you can see the world around us and absorb.”
