Amy Kuhl Cox's Profile

About

I am drawn to working with a number of creative processes, including jewelry-making, knitting, felting, photography, and painting. To create unique scarves, hats and other knitted and felted accessories, I travel the country to acquire exotic fibers from around the world. I began making beads and jewelry in 1998 and have taught jewelry-making studios to children as well. I enjoy lampworking, the process of making beads from melted glass, and also using doming resin to suspend eclectic imagery in bezels to make pendants and earrings. Most recently, I have combined my love for knitting and jewelry-making, by knitting sterling silver wire and suspending beads on each lifted stitch. The uninhibited creativity of the children I teach has inspired me to design whimsical scarves and jewelry with fun, bold colors. I hope that my creations appeal to the child in every adult.
