In the words of Amie Preston:
I love to create art that tells a story. When wearing jewelry, I like to look down and remember the symbolism. An example is the ring I wear on my wedding finger. Silver with a highlighted brass nugget - I call it my “brass ring.” When I married my husband, Patrick Hald, I really caught the brass ring.
When I discovered my fascination with metal, I had just started my 20th year of work as an executive for a fast-paced fitness corporation. On a whim, I signed up to take a silversmith class. In that first class, I had an OIGI moment (pronounced oh-gee, and is the acronym for Oh-I-Get-It!). It was life changing; I had found what I wanted to do the rest of my life. After several years of instruction and planning, I left the corporate world and now I am able to live that dream and share it with others.
Come meet the artist and see her amazing work on August 3rd!
