Harmoniously integrated colors, elegant design and rich, interacting textures are qualities that characterize Amy's beautiful jewelry creations. Often working with found materials such as weathered pieces of copper, sea glass and seashells, she transforms these materials into wearable and unique works of art.
Amy's art shows a sophisticated compositional sensitivity. She integrates the contrasting elements of found material with wire, and the wire not only functions structurally, but balances the volumetric forms of her found glass and seashells with elegant linear elements that meander and weave throughout her work.
It was difﬁcult for me to select a favorite piece; in all of Amy's work she achieves outstanding quality, but I was particularly attracted to her copper bracelet. The texture of the metal and remnants of the copper's natural patina impart a deep richness to this piece, and the metal is nicely complemented by the colors of the enclosed Amazonite gemstone. In her piece entitled "Outback Wood Jasper," the warm browns of the stone are accentuated and complemented by the addition of the looping sterling silver wire, and the sterling silver wire establishes a wonderful visual dialogue with warm colors of the stone, enhancing one's perception of the stone.
I hope everyone enjoys viewing the selections of jewelry created by Amy Wamy that are showcased here!
