Amy Pike Jewelry

Artisan & Bespoke jEWELRY

Amy Pike was born in New Orleans. She is the daughter of two artists – a potter and a photographer. Her early exposure to the creative world through artist studios and craft shows set the foundation for her artistic journey, which now includes jewelry-making. However, her initial venture was in the realm of music.

Amy honed her singing skills, establishing herself as a notable vocalist in Atlanta’s nightclub scene and beyond on the East Coast. Her musical repertoire included genres like Rockabilly, Swing, and Hot Club Jazz of the 30s and 40s. She has received accolades for both her singing and songwriting abilities, with her music gracing radio waves and even national commercials. She’s truly multi-talented!

 

Transition to Jewelry Making

Amy relocated to Asheville in 2004. While she still performs at venues around town, her creative interests have evolved. She began quilting and making art dolls, which led to the opening of a small fabric store in West Asheville. This new path introduced her to Haywood Community College’s esteemed craft program. Here, Amy focused on metalsmithing, culminating in her earning a degree in Professional Craft Metals and Jewelry.

Today, Amy has her own home studio and teaches metalsmithing at Haywood Community College and in the River Arts District. She works with all kinds of metals and stones. Her work is imaginative, well-designed, and expertly crafted, encompassing pieces of all price points and possibilities. But as Amy insists, “… you don’t need precious metals to make beautiful jewelry … all metals are precious if you treat them that way.”
