Meet Amalea

Welcome to my website! Amalea is Greek for Amy. It's always been  pretty clear to me that I owe my love for jewelry to my ethnic heritage - I come from a large family of creative types! We're not shy, we love color, and celebrate the beauty of this wonderful world every chance we get!

Making beautiful jewelry is part of that. Whether it's a design using natural gemstones and precious metals, or grains of glass fused to metal in the kiln, I want a woman to feel and look a little extra special in my jewelry. I'm drawn to the colors and forms of nature, the miracle of gemstones from the earth, the magical processes of creating enamel elements and transforming metals. I enjoy creating jewelry that enhances a woman's "look" and in turn, often, her outlook! The greatest pleasure comes when I see someone wearing one of my pieces and I know it makes her happy!

You can find Amalea Jewelry at my shop in the historic Seneca Center; it's called The Little Studio. My jewelry also is available at Tamarack - The Best of West Virginia, and soon, on my Etsy page.

Want to know more? Here's an article from Morgantown Magazine from a few years ago.

So please, check out my jewelry and let me know if I can make something special for you!  "Like" The Little Studio on Facebook. Follow me on Instagram.

Peace by piece...
