Brooklyn based jeweler Emily Amey has always followed an independent course. In her early twenties, she moved to NYC to study metalsmithing at FIT. Soon her ocean inspired designs were appearing in magazines such as Instyle and Lucky and stores such as ABC Carpet and Home. Today her work sells in stores all over the US and Caribbean.
An obsessive traveler and collector, Emily draws inspiration from ordinary natural objects such as pyrite fossil and bone, squid tentacle and urchin. She has traveled the world from deserts of South America to the beaches of Jordan in search of gemstones and found objects to inspire her designs.
Emily works intuitively, sculpting organic forms out of soft wax to create ring bands that are idiosyncratic and distinct. She works primarily in silver and gold, and uses recycled fine metals and responsibly sourced gemstones whenever possible. The entire jewelry-making process, from design to full-scale production, is completed domestically with the majority of it done in-house at Emily's Brooklyn studio.
