Artist and Master Wax Carver
I am a practicing Visual Artist and Master Wax Carver, and have been working, for over 20 years, in both of these fields.
I meticulously carve beautiful green wax, at scale, to represent cherished memories and moments. With a steady hand, and playful, creative spirit, we work together to make anything that you can dream of. It could be as unique as a tiny stuffed toy (with it's ear missing), a specific object, a conceptual idea, or even a corporate logo or promotion.
Tell me your stories, and I will make your meaningful memories shine!
Amanda did an excellent job with the custom charms she helped create for my wife and family! Amanda's attention to detail is second to none and she transferred the expressions perfectly from the pictures I provided. Great communication throughout the entire project and we had no revisions! 5 stars without hesitation. 😊
Joshua Tree Charm
I am so happy that I found Amanda's shop! She has been an absolute pleasure to work with! I came to her with a vague idea, and she brought it into existence - actually much better than I had even imagined. I simply sent an image of the art (Joshua Tree) I had in mind & she took it from there, and worked with me to develop the concept and kept me informed each step of the way. I thought it was so gorgeous, that I actually had her create a second to keep for myself! I could not be more pleased with my experience.
Silver Domed Earrings
Wow! These earrings were in a museum collection and have been cleverly and beautifully re-made into a pair I now can wear everyday. I love the detail and they are just the right size, shape and presence to evoke the history they are part of. You are such a talent and as always your jewellery exceeds all expectations!!
Gold & Silver Annual Charm
Amanda's work is absolutely flawless. We are creating a charm bracelet for our daughter; she receives a charm each birthday until she's 18 and her bracelet is complete. The charm represents something significant from her year that year. Amanda has created 4 charms so far and done and absolutely beautiful job. They are EXACTLY what we envisioned, down to every last detail. This will be a very special, personal, and meaningful gift for our girl one day!
Northwoods Cuff Bracelet
I've been dreaming about this bracelet for over 10 years. I sent a sketch, and asked her to make it in the style of her 'Oh Canada' bracelet. The result was more than amazing and greatly exceeded my expectations. We exchanged emails and sketches to get it exactly right. She listened. She understood more than I ever could have hoped. The detail is unbelievably crisp. The realism is mind-blowing. She captured my dream and I doubt I will take it off!!! I don't have the words to praise both he work and the process to the level they deserve!!!!
I am a Visual Artist & Master Wax Carver, here you will find a representation of my efforts. Everything in my shop is designed and carved (in beautiful green wax) by me. Always.
I've been working as a Visual Artist over the past 20 years, and as a jewelry designer and hand wax carver for over 18 years.
I am so thankful to spend my days following creative pursuits in the studio on a daily basis. At this point, I am working to create a more sustainable practice, so that I may be able to continue to work into the future.
Thinking of jewelry as small scale sculpture, I feel that it is a language that I am fluent in.
I know that in sculpture, there lies a translation for all things.
Thank you for visiting
Your support and interest in my art work, is so important to me.
It helps to keep me in the studio - where I'm mean't to be.
