A hands-on learner, Somerville-based designer Emily Scott developed her signature style after attending jewelry school. Inspired by tattoo culture and old Sailor Jerry work, her signature look is at once preppy, vintage and edgy, the kind of jewelry that makes a statement without saying a word.
In addition to developing a signature style, she designs and forges custom wedding rings and engagement bands. A happy accident, Emily didn’t set out to customize rings, but has come to enjoy working with couples, particularly because they put a tremendous amount of thought into their rings. “I started designing engagement rings while still in school. I had a few friends getting engaged and they really liked the idea of me doing the work. They all had family diamonds, which I am a huge fan of. I love the idea of taking something that was so meaningful to a person in your family and making it a part of your new family.”
