Amy Faust Upcycled Jewelry
I find that working in the jewelry arts allows me to think sculpturally, graphically and painterly. I can also satisfy my desire to make things with my hands.
I love simplicity, color, light, subtle texture and the mysterious connection that art has to nature. As a visual person I am always looking for inspiration from both the natural and urban environments. As a San Francisco based artist I find joy in the treasure trove of objects, such as beach and bottle glass with hints of writing or design or gorgeous smooth pebbles. Cutting them into specific shapes they resemble gemstones and take on a new precious quality.
