    • Arts

After overcoming his despair when he realized he could technically never grow up to be a firetruck, Alex Boyd, surrounded by a family of artisans, was encouraged to create. A working artist, teacher and jewelry-repair aficionado—the bills still have to be paid—Alex has developed textured, yet linear aesthetics at his bench and avoids as much polishing as possible. Never one to take himself seriously, but driven by the lines, forms, colors and stones in his designs, Alex joins Courtney to discuss jewelry business drivers and the makings of a master, while sharing many laughs along the way.
