RISD Alum Alice Scott
Degree BFA Jewelry + Metalsmithing
Year 2009

Alice Scott is inspired to make work that celebrates traditions and history. She creates jewelry reminiscent of the Victorian era but updated for contemporary wear. She borrows symbols from a variety of spiritual and cultural practices to give each piece meaning, stories, and personal significance. Alice creates her original designs using traditional silversmithing techniques with a tiny propane torch and delicate silver wire. She solders the wires together at 1700 degrees, then cleans and polishes the forms she creates. To finish, she'll often hammer each piece for texture. Alice Scott received a BFA in jewelry and metalsmithing
in 2009 from RISD. She regularly takes classes at Penland School of Crafts to continue her education and refine her techniques.
