Certificates at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco.
She apprenticed with Ronda Coryell developing her skills in the
ancient art of granulation. She taught jewelry fabrication at
Minnetonka Center for the Arts and Hopkins Community Education in
Minnesota. She currently volunteers at Hopkins High School for Terry
Chamberlin in the jewelry program. Amy is an emerging artist who
designs and fabricates her one of a kind or limited edition jewelry.
The essence of her work is a play between movement and sensuality.
Her current work is based on hidden messages and healing qualities
in the universe.
My work is my spiritual journey. It represents where I have been and
where I am now. My intent is to provide healing energies to the
wearers for their journeys. My focus is to explore my passions by
using sensual shapes, kinetic energy and vibrant qualities. I want
people to resonate with my designs, where ever they are in life. My
message of self love is transmitted from my hands to their hearts.
