Amy Bray - wildwalrusstudio@gmail.comwww.wildwalrus.etsy.comwww.thewildwalrus.blogspot.com

Having come from an art background, it was easy to love jewelry making! Amy started stringing beads in 1990. Looking for a greater challenge, she began learning wire working and loved its freedom and creativity. A local business offered lampworking classes, and being an adventurous spirit, Amy soon found herself making and selling a jewelry line using her own wire work and her signature glass beads. Amy looked for a way to express her painting skills and entered the world of hot glass where she created artwork by fusing glass powder and frit to make beautiful artwork and glassware. Amy, who is also certified in metal clay, incorporated this medium and copper pieces in her glass work resulting in a jewelry line featuring painted and fused glass pendants artistically wrapped in metal clay. Amy also casts resin and forms polymer clay in mold she makes.  Amy has a reputation as being a generous teacher.  You can find her teaching the Painting with Fire immersion process of enameling,  along with many of her other interests, at venues in Nevada and Utah, at the Artisan Craft Expo in Las Vegas, and from her own private studio.
