Cynthia Scott's interest in gemstones and jewelry design were fostered from an early age while growing up in Alaska. A childhood gift of a rock tumbler triggered a lifelong fascination with minerals, gems, and fossils. Her grandmother particularly encouraged her early efforts at designing jewelry, often ordering special beads and organizing fun projects. She also gifted Cynthia a beautiful and fascinating book on the history of beads.
From the age of 21 on, Cynthia toured the United States to exhibit at retail gem and jewelry shows. Her ambitious show schedule exposed her to every 'facet' of both the gem and jewelry trades. From rough gems to exquisite finished jewelry, Cynthia was fully immersed. As someone who was always eager to ask questions, listen, and learn it was an exceptional and unique opportunity to expand and grow both as a gem dealer and as a jewelry designer.
With twenty years of experience, Cynthia has developed a reputation among dealers and collectors as having an exceptional eye for colored gemstones. The stones in her collection all reflect her expertise and deep-rooted affinity for beautiful objects; designing elevated and elegant jewelry to showcase exquisite gemstones is her complimentary passion.
Today, Cynthia happily resides in the beautiful mountains of northern Utah with her husband and their daughter. Rocks and minerals are a family affair, as he is a geologist specializing in the fossils of Wyoming's Green River Formation.
The bead book Cynthia's grandmother gave her so long ago still holds a place of honor in her expansive gem and jewelry library.
