“I believe that wearing jewelry is personal, intimate and tactile. When jewelry is worn, it travels through the adventures and lives of others, changing and evolving with their experiences. I lovingly handcrafted these objects to connect and evolve with others.”
An avid reader, Amalia Moon came into metalsmithing through browsing in a bookstore. After discovering a book on jewelry making, she signed up for a weekend course and learned the basics… which then snowballed into lots of tools and classes. Originally from sunny California, Amalia moved to the chilly East Coast to finish her degree in Metalsmithing. After completing her degree she decided to stay in Portland Maine, trading in the Pacific ocean for the Atlantic. Amalia has worked in studio jewelry production for award winning designers and studied with 3rd generation goldsmiths for a number of years and finally decided to venture out on her own.
