Amanda always knew she would have a career-making 'things' and chose to study 3D design at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design in Farnham. She became completely enthralled by the sight, sound, smells and pure power of the forge but fortunately, they also did jewellery on the same course. Amanda was much more suited to sitting down at the jewellery bench, working on tiny, intricate pieces of precious metals.
She graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1998 and promptly set up a workshop in Clerkenwell, London with the help from the Crafts Council and the Prince’s Youth Business Trust. Since then she has been making and developing her designs into jewellery collections that aim to satisfy her thirst for experimentation and new concepts in jewellery construction techniques in a style all of her own.
