Eye Candy – Amy Smetana
I pull inspiration from everything around me whether it be nature, textiles or architectural lines. I will forever be a student at heart. I love to learn new metalwork and gemstone setting techniques to create organic jewelry with a touch of elegance. Sometimes a gemstone wants to be bezel set or prong set or nested in an anticlastic setting. Whatever the setting type, it is custom made for that particular gemstone or pearl to create a one of a kind piece of jewelry. In addition, I recycle sterling silver by melting and rolling it out to be used in components of new pieces of jewelry.
