Alice started making jewelry when she was six years old, painting brooches with pumpkin faces to sell at craft shows for Halloween. She grew up thinking of new designs for jewelry all the time, then attended Rhode Island School of Design for Jewelry and Metalsmithing. After receiving her BFA she worked as a bench jeweler for a large company in New Orleans before launching her own studio in 2011. Her interest in making jewelry that celebrates traditions continues. Working with a variety of metals and gemstones, Alice borrows symbols from a variety of spiritual and cultural practices in order to create her own world of sacred objects. Each piece is meant to help the wearer feel connected to something mysterious, ancient, and bigger than herself. She describes her ‘Symbology Jewelry’ line as elegant, meaningful, peaceful, modern, and inspired.
"I love being able to make art that commemorates important events or loved ones in someone’s life. I love the stories that go along with jewelry." ~ Alice Scott, Asheville NC
