Born and raised in the interior of Alaska, Cynthia Scott's interest in gemstones and jewelry design were fostered from an early age. A childhood gift of a rock tumbler triggered a lifelong fascination with minerals, gems, and fossils. Her grandmother especially encouraged her early efforts at designing jewelry; she ordered special beads and organized projects, and gifted Cynthia a fascinating book on the history of beads.
As a young woman, Cynthia toured the United States to exhibit at retail gem and jewelry shows. Her ambitious schedule exposed her to every 'facet' of both the gem and jewelry trades. From rough gems to exquisite finished jewelry, Cynthia was fully immersed. For someone willing 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. As a result of these experiences, Cynthia has developed a reputation among dealers and collectors as having an excellent eye for colored gems. The stones in her collection all reflect that expertise.
Today, Cynthia happily resides in the beautiful mountains of northern Utah with her husband, a geologist and paleontologist, and two cats. The bead book her grandmother gave her so long ago still holds a place of honor in her library.
