Dauvit Alexander- Core Talk Guest Artist

Sage Hall 116

Core Design hosts Dauvit Alexander- also known as the Justified Sinner- a largely self-taught jeweler from Scotland who works with found metals, mostly iron and steel, repurposing them to create jewelry which crosses boundaries of style and techniques of the fine jeweler and the most up-to-date digital technologies to create complex, multi-layered pieces, often using jewelry history as a starting point. Dauvit’s work can be seen in many recent jewelry publications and has been exhibited widely. He is the Vice-Chairman of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery in the UK and teaches a fine jewelry course in Glasgow Scotland. Surprisingly for a man with filthy hands, in 2013 Dauvit was nominated “Scotland’s Most Stylish Male”
