Welcome to Loyalsmith. I'm Amy, the designer and maker of Loyalsmith's lightweight and airy collection of silver and gold jewelry.
In the early 2000’s I took my first metalsmithing class from George McLean at the Pratt Fine Arts Center in my hometown of Seattle. This was followed by studies with, among others, Andy Cooperman, Jennifer Stenhouse, Jane Martin, Sarah Gascoigne, Micki Lippe and Nancy Megan Corwin. After earning a certificate as a jewelry technician from the Revere Academy in San Francisco, I sold my own designs and the art/craft/jewelry of dozens of Seattle makers at my Seattle store, JayWalk, from 2005 to 2010.
During subsequent years of being a stay-at-home-mom to my son, Gus, I would hold trunk shows at my home, inviting other creative makers to join me while we hosted our neighbors and friends. Always successful, it made sense to pursue creating a line of jewelry that could also be sold in stores...and Loyalsmith was born.
I'm so glad you've stopped by to look at the work I make in between the hours I'm not carpooling to and from Gus' school, basketball practice, and guitar lessons! I put my full life experience and skill behind every piece that I make, and am honored to see people wearing and gifting my work.
Amy Bush, Loyalsmith
