Amy Buettner's Profile

About

Tucker and Amy began working together as a team in the jewelry studio in the year 2000. Before they came together as collaborators in their craft, Amy had a jewelry business for six years and Tucker was a professional videographer. With Amy’s fascination of the world of minutia and Tucker’s keen sense of detail and precision their talents melded naturally in the medium of jewelry. Together they forged a grand love and knowledge of the stones they use, and have developed a style that expresses their reverence for the natural world and historical adornment.

Using fabrication and casting techniques, they create their one of a kind
jewelry pieces using sterling silver and 18k gold, and at times, copper, steel and brass. Each stone is chosen for it’s exceptional quality and it’s unusual color, pattern or origin. Combining their personal archetypal shapes and forms with metalsmithing techniques to alter the metal’s texture and color they love to make jewelry pieces with movement and character. Their roles in the studio are equal in that the creation of each piece is a collaborative effort. Their aim as artists is to create elegant, uncommon jewelry pieces for the wearer to enjoy: as personal heirlooms or affirmations of the owner’s spirit.

Ultimately though, Amy and Tucker can’t help the pull of the earth’s mysteries in the form of stones. Many of their metalsmithing designs seem to be extensions of the stone’s personality: dancing off the patterns or energies it portrays.
Unusual gems and minerals are only one focus in their repertoire. They’ve been known to enjoy creating little environments for their jewels to live in: inspired by nature, fantasy and gadgetry.
