Amy Peters became a jewelry designer at the the age of 8. An after-school program in jewelry enameling sparked a lifetime love of jewelry making. After that program she went on to bead-working, pearl knotting, casting and fabricating jewelry. She worked at an after-school job knotting pearls during high school and worked in a bead shop through college. Peters’ attended Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, but Jewelry design wasn’t offered as a major. After taking every class offered at the school, she packed her bags and she transferred to San Francisco State. She was able to create her own major and received her BA in Metal Arts and Jewelry Design from San Francisco State in 1989. It is important for Peters’ that her inspirational jewelry be affordable and accessible to everyone. ‘I want the designs to be inspirational and to be keepsakes and talismans for everyday life’, states Peters. ‘I especially love the time in a girl’s life when she is just finding her voice, My hope is that my designs can help them along their voyage’. Peters’ spends her time split between her home studio and her production studio designing and creating her unique inspirational jewelry. She works to includes affirmations and motivations for everyday life. Living at the coast is often a source of great design ideas. The relaxed atmosphere keeps the designs fun and whimsical. Currently over 1200 stores, galleries and catalogs carry Amy Peters’ Studio’s inspirational 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.
