Students who register for Jewelry Open Studio will have access to tools, supplies, torches and the rolling mill during each open studio session, with the exception of the hydraulic press. The hydraulic press is never available during open studio sessions. A Studio Assistant will be in attendance to monitor and assist as needed, but instruction is not offered during the Open Studio Session. Students must have completed at least 1 jewelry department class (Beginning, Beyond the Basics, Intermediate or Advanced Jewelry classes) to be eligible for Open Studio. Students must be able to work independently. Students signing up for the open jewelry studio session understand that this is a time to work within their current skill set, and not a time to work or experiment with any tools and equipment for the "first-time". Please be advised of the following studio procedures: Students are required to wear a mask at all times while in the studio. No exceptions. Please arrive and leave at your scheduled time. Coming early or leaving late will make it incredibly difficult for staff to effectively clean and disinfect student areas. There is no communal food or drink allowed in the studio at this time.

Amy is an Atlanta-based artist who has spent the last 20 years experimenting with a variety of media. Her early explorations into photography and sculpture informed her passion for capturing and revealing beauty within the third dimension. Amy's favorite artist is Alexander Calder. She loves the movement of his pieces. He is a big influence in a lot of her jewelry designs.

The last ten years have found Amy crafting fabulous adornments in precious metals. A distinct characteristic of her jewelry designs is the incorporation of vibrant color tinted resin or felt. Amy finds that the fusion of metals and rich colored alternative materials create dynamic contrasts and spatial relationships that are truly unique. She says she gets so much joy from making that she wanted to share the process with others. She loves seeing her students develop their own creative style.

Amy has exhibited her jewelry at the High Museum of Art and is currently showing her work at the Decatur Gallery, Spruill Gallery and the Beehive boutique. She also participates in several Atlanta area art shows, such as the Piedmont Park Arts Festival, Inman Park Arts Festival, Indie Craft Experience and Chastain Park Arts Festival to name a few.

Amy's home is a beacon for all lost animals. She currently has 3 cats and 2 dogs, most of whom just showed up on her front porch. She once even had a flock of chickens show up! Currently the "No Vacancy" sign is on.
