About the Designer
Brooklyn based jeweler Emily Amey has always followed an independent course. In her early twenties, she moved to NYC to study metalsmithing at FIT. Soon her ocean inspired designs were appearing in magazines such as Instyle and Lucky. Emily draws inspiration from ordinary natural objects such as pyrite fossil and bone, squid tentacle and urchin. She has traveled the world from deserts of South America to the beaches of Jordan in search of gemstones and found objects to inspire her designs.
