In addition to being a mosaic and glass artistan and painter, I have made my mark with rare and collectible jewelry designs. I started making jewelry in my teens with two women. After receiving my bachelor's in fine art, I had the unique opportunity to travel the world with my husband. I've been greatly influenced by the cultures of the East. While living in Hong Kong, I managed a pearl company, and would spend lunch hours scouring for rare finds in the antique shops. When I returned to the US I started this Amy Kahn Russell line and have grown exponentially in design and skill adding in rare finds from my travels. I love the color combinations of gems, fossils and metals. I’ve added micro mosaics, & inspired by stones, history, and I tell stories by accentuating the veins of color with gems and ornamentation.
