Metal Sculptor Amy Tavern

Upstate NY-based artist Amy Tavern's artistic talent relies on her memories to make exquisite hand-crafted jewelry, turning her memories into wearable objects that carry with them what she refers to as a "universal understanding".  WSKG's crew visited Amy's studio in Richfield Springs, where she explains how her work is autobiographical and enables her to communicate with other people, while revealing the singularities of the objects such as their tradition and history. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4XtHXpiX3U
Amy’s talent has been recognized and celebrated by Metalsmith Magazine, and rock star Amy Lee has worn her pieces at the Grammy's.
