Artist Amy Torello has long been fascinated with jewelry. After years of travel and career changes, Amy headed south to Taxco de Alarcon, a colonial town high in the mountains outside of Mexico City. It was here that she had the fortune to apprentice with several ‘maestros de la plata’ and study at the ‘Escuela Nacional de Artes Plasticas’.
In 2011, she continued her studies in advanced enameling at ‘El Circulo deBuenos Aires’, an artistic society dedicated to keeping old world techniques alive.
Amy uses a variety of methods and materials to bring her ideas to life,embracing both traditional hand-crafting skills as well as the most modernof technology. She is especially fascinated with the relationship between color, texture, movement,and form-translating these qualities into jewelry is her passion.
