Alix graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a BFA in Painting in 1987, after spending a year studying at Oxford University in England and traveling through Europe the following summer. She received awards for her art well before she knew that jewelry would be the path she would follow.
Her paintings and assemblage works were featured in many exhibits and galleries, including the Seoul Olympics Art Festival in 1988.
In 1989, Alix returned to London and started collecting and selling antiques as she pursued making one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. She combined a fascination with time-worn objects with that of cutting-edge arts.
Her jewelry pieces included original tin-type photographs, pocket watch parts, and various curios. Her exploration in painting, sculpture and assemblage literally shrunk into wearable art. Alix sold her unique art jewelry in London galleries as well is at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art and New York galleries.
In 1992 Alix decided to move to San Francisco, where she has been living since. It was in San Francisco that her precious metals journey began with a rapid leap to a new business. Though the medium was new, the themes in her jewelry were true to the original inspirations in her past forays.
Alix Bluh's jewelery can be found in a number of high end retailers including the Sundance Catalog, Imagine (Santa Barbara, CA), FINI (Seattle, WA), New York Adorned (NYC) and COG & Pearl (Brooklyn, NY).
In addition, her work is also shown in galleries all over the USA, and in 8 other countries.

Raves about Alix Bluh
If anyone is interested in expanding their world of creativity, no matter where you are today, I HIGHLy recommend you getting your butt up to New Hampshire (bring your winter clothes) and dive into this lake of beauty, community, creativity, laughter & color called the Squam Art Workshops.
This past week, I went to Rockywold-Deephaven camp in rural New Hampshire. It was a rustic, turn-of-the-century kind of place, with claw-foot tubs and old glass windows that rattle in the wind and massive fireplaces.
