Dry, rugged and rocky hills contrasted by weeping willows and a meandering river bed not only provided a study in contrast but an opportunity for exploration and creativity. Amy's aesthetic as an artist remains influenced by the farm’s environment. She often uses contrast in her work; juxtaposing colors and textures, and employing a combination of mixed and patinated metals. Her jewelry is often described as vibrant and tactile, serving as a form of self expression for those who wear it. Amy was raised to appreciate all things handmade, part of this stems from the Kiwi “do-it-yourself” mentality. She hand forges every piece in her studio workshop in Seattle and uses finishes that are beaten or matte to reveal the natural tone and appearance of the metal. Amy believes that jewelry is extremely personal and the best part of her job comes from customer interaction. It’s the individual stories that accompany each custom design or unique purchase that linger with Amy long after the piece is completed.
