It was called the Harvard Metal Stamper and for 25 cents you could put your own special message on a good luck coin that you could put on a keyring or wear on a necklace chain. Peters' chain of choice was always ball chain. After searching antique stores all over the United States for over 2 decades Peters' finally has one of the rare arcade machines in her home game room. Thanks to Ebay!

Peters' spends her time split between her home studio and her production studio. So she can be closer to her two children. Living at the coast is often a source of great design ideas. The relaxed atmosphere keeps the designs fun and whimsical.

Currently over 900 stores, galleries and catalogs carry Amy Peters' Studio's jewelry. Her work has been seen in magazines including People, Us Magazine, Cosmo Girl, Working Woman, The Crafts Report, Giftware News, Accessories and Gifts and Decorative Accessories. On television her work has been seen on Survivor, The OC, Road Rules and Sabrina. Her jewelry is in the collections of many of today's hottest celebrities.

Amy now writes a business advice column, Ask Amy, for Crafts Business Magazine. And in March of 2005 Peters' was honored to have been chosen by The Crafts Report magazine in their 30th anniversary issue as one of the "10 Crafts Professionals to Watch"
