Amy has been beading for over 30 years and uses a variety of beads and gemstones in her work. She incorporates crystals such as quartz, citrine, and aquamarine which all have individual healing qualities. Amy uses a variety of colors, sizes, and shapes of beads to create interesting wearable compositions.
Amy's various collections are all inspired by the beads and crystals they include. All have a wordly flair due to their exotic beads and intricate designs. Many of her pieces are inspired by South American and Asian cultures including her Aztec, Zen, and Buddha collections.
