Alex Ozers: Full Artist Spotlight



Alex Ozers of From the Reliquary loves to push the boundaries of jewelry design and aesthetic. The holidays are a perfect opportunity to experiment with new ideas and bold pieces.

Here’s our full interview with Alex in his own words: 

How did you get started creating your pieces?

Well, I went to school for painting, but I very quickly discovered that it’s easier to sell a necklace than a painting, if you can believe it. The rent had to be paid, so I’ve been doing this since.  


What’s the favorite part of your work/what you make?

Beating the hell out of metal and setting it on fire is a pretty sweet gig.  


How do you express your creativity through your work?

I try to think about the classic aesthetic qualities of jewelry and just mess around with that. Complicate the expected, see how far I can push a design.


What brings you joy?

Reveling in contempt.


What challenge(s) have you overcome?

Probably too few, but enough to roll my eyes when a new one shows up and just keep on truckin’.


Anything exciting in the works/coming up for you? 

The holidays are coming, which is always such a great opportunity to try out new ideas. People shopping for gifts are more attracted to bold pieces that they might shy away from for themselves. Everyone wants to make a splash with an exciting gift, so I get to just run wild creatively. 



What do you wish for the world? 

Higher taxes on income that isn’t directly earned through labor.
