Amy Glaswand brings to her launch collection a wide visual vocabulary that has evolved over her many experiences as a designer. Trained in the fine arts at both the Rhode Island School of Design and the University Of Wisconsin, she began her career developing fabrics for major fashion houses, such as Ralph Lauren and Liz Claiborne. This work was followed by years as a costume designer in the film and television industry. Her research as a costumer cultivated her strong understanding of historical and multicultural design.
Amy's love of jewelry has been lifelong. She began exploring metals through classical gold smithing techniques and later acquired rendering and model making skills at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She has created both fine jewelry collections and freelance designs within the industry. Her solo collection is influenced by classical architectural and iconic imagery, as well as her painterly sense of color. Produced in New York City, each piece is in 18k gold or silver, set with high quality diamonds and colored gems. Amy strives to evoke a strong visual statement with her jewelry. Her sense of clean, modern design with a classical twist is evident throughout this collection.
