Meet the Maker
Columbia City resident Amy Bush designs and makes the Loyalsmith line of jewelry in the hours she is not carpooling to and from her son’s school, BPSA scouts (all inclusive, check ‘em out!) and swim team practice. In the early 2000’s Amy took her first metalsmithing class from George McLean at the Pratt Fine Arts Center in her hometown of Seattle. This was followed by studies with, among others, Andy Cooperman, Jennifer Stenhouse, Jane Martin, Sarah Gascoigne, and Nancy Megan Corwin. After earning her certificate as a jewelry technician from the Revere Academy in San Francisco, Amy sold her own jewelry and the art/craft/jewelry of dozens of Seattle makers at her store, JayWalk, from 2005 to 2010. After several years as a stay-at-home-mom to her son, Gus, she is now making jewelry again.
