Amy Knuver stopped by yesterday and we took a few photos of her handcrafted jewelry because I wanted to share this high school senior’s creativity with all of you. I have long been impressed with Amy’s necklaces, rings, earrings, pins, and more as I’ve spied them at local craft fairs and the Holiday Artist’s Market at The Arts Place. Some pieces include handmade clay roses and beads with delicately linked together chains of varying length and gauge, while others employ wire and pearls or a mixture of scrapbook paper and washers, Scrabble tiles, or repurposed pop cans. I’m pretty sure if Amy was given a plate full of tiny craft objects and recyclable items, she’d use each snippet to form some incredible jewelry. Not only does Amy make classy pieces, she also has a knack for fashioning jewelry that’s playful and fun. You would not believe the earrings she makes from miniscule pieces of clay [yes...these tomatoes have seeds in them...see that taco there...it most certainly is topped with shredded cheese!]. These two avenues lend themselves wonderfully to jewelry parties for women’s groups, and crafting parties for children. Feel free to contact Amy if you’re interested in her jewelry or if you’d love her to make an appearance at your next party. It will be exciting to see how Amy’s entrepreneurial spirit and creative streak will continue to flourish in the future.
