Unique, hand forged jewellery created with
love & precision in Wanaka, New Zealand
Growing up on a sheep station in Central Otago, New Zealand helped shape Amy's aesthetic and appreciation for the handmade. The DIY mentality was instilled in her from a young age and the farm provided plenty of opportunities to create and explore. During Art School, her love of tools and equipment was quickly expanded upon and a passion for creating handmade jewellery was born.
Now days there's an abundance of technology, machines manufacture faster, en masse and for less. However, Amy believes there is incredible value in crafting an object entirely by hand, knowing it won't be reproduced in an exact likeness. It not only retains that personal connection to its maker, but will last lifetimes. Amy personally hand forges her jewellery from start to finish, ensuring each piece is truly unique. Although her work embodies the authenticity of being handmade, it's also refined and accurately crafted to the highest quality. Custom work for all occasions, including engagement and wedding rings, are her passion. The connections with each customer and the lasting relationships that often develop as a result, are the ultimate perks of her job. "My goal is to create pieces that truly resonate with my customers and help showcase their individuality, as connections and experiences is really what life is all about"
After spending 11 incredible years in the U.S, Amy moved back to Central Otago with her husband and their two "Amerikiwi" kids. Amy now works out of her custom-built gallery workshop on their property close to Mt. Iron in Wanaka. She is available via appointment in studio, or email, message, zoom or call to answer any of your questions and discuss your custom ideas.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, whether you would like to book an appointment at my studio in Wanaka, or have any questions about the materials or custom design process I would love to hear from you. I'm in my studio Mon, Wed, Thur and Fri, and by appointment on Saturday. Looking forward to hearing from you ~ Amy.
