Amanda (and Goblin)
My whole life I have made jewelry, and I have been in the fine jewelry business for over 16 years.
In the mid 2000’s I attended the Gemological Institute of America and received my Graduate Gemologist Diploma. Afterward I took bench jeweler and stone setting classes through New Approach School for Jewelers in Tennessee, and ultimately opened my home studio in 2015.
I specialize in fine jewelry repairs for local stores, and I also create my own designs in my spare time. I really enjoy repairing a much-loved jewelry item, as well as discovering loose gemstones that inspire me to create a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry with them.
Most of the stones featured in my designs are found through gem and mineral shows, specialized rock shops, or are purchased right from the gem cutter. In addition, I have a large supply of rough Fordite which I cut and polish myself in my studio.
For 30 years I have delighted in making jewelry, and now I’m so excited to be able to share it with the world!
While Amanda does all the designing, innovation, fabrication, selling, customer communication, and general running of the business, I do everything else. Which pretty much means I'm the one responsible for the technology side of things - mainly the website. If you're having any issues with any aspect of the site, let me know and we'll get it taken care of immediately.
