Amanda Green was born in the UK but now resides in the beautiful town of Squamish on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada. After working in the fashion industry for over 12 years, she eventually rejected the limitations of designing under the constraints of corporate companies and focused solely on jewellery making – an art that had been an interest of hers since she was a young girl, scavenging jumble sales and charity shops.
Modernism, paired with quality and craftsmanship, inspires Amanda. These qualities take precedence over the ability to mass-produce pieces for quick and thoughtless consumption. Her innate ability to conceptualise within the 3D realm makes her pieces sculptural, while at the same time wearable. She believes there is room for jewellery to be both art and craft; the jeweller is unconfined and able to work within her visions of what is aesthetic and meaningful.
