Our Story

Growing up on a farm teaches one the value of hardwork and the importance of good tools that are reliable. Exploring the mountains and deserts of Utah gives one the recognition and appreciation of nature and all it beholds. These values were embedded in Scott Whitaker and would shape the work Scott would be called to do. 

Scott had no desire to be a full-time farmer and social media didn’t even exist back then so exploring nature and getting paid wasn’t even a thing yet. However, the answer came from Sue Viella, a local artist and Scott’s high school jewelry teacher. Sue helped Scott develop the skills and a love for the art of moving metal and polishing stones. Adding Scott’s innate hard work ethics and his passion for being physically active in the mountains, deserts, and any water he could find led to Scott James Jewelry being born. 

Scott melded his two loves into a craft that now speaks to hearts and eyes of the thousands of people that have decided to wear a Scott James handcrafted piece. Scott feels honored that his pieces can act as reminders of a special place, moment or loved one. 

Scott makes his jewelry in a small studio located in the Wasatch Mountains where he grew up.  His wife and three sons have been a large part of his journey in both jewelry making and adventuring.
