Amy Keeper

Having undertaken the City & Guilds Certificate and Diploma, Amy graduated from London Metropolitan University in June 2007. During her time there she developed an interest in using images in jewellery and particularly vintage postcards and photographs.

Amy incorporates the photographed characters from vintage postcards to make pieces of jewellery with a nostalgic aesthetic. Sometimes setting the images behind stones to include them as precious elements, and sometimes using photo-etching to create the suggestion of a modern cameo.

Taking further inspiration from the messages written on the reverse of these postcards, Amy designs her jewellery to try to reflect the romantic sentiment with which they were originally sent, often incorporating the messages themselves.
