Designer, author, poet, painter, philanthropist, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, healer and traveler, Amy Conway launched her jewelry collection in 2010. Incorporating words from her poems and images from her paintings into her designs, every piece of Amy Conway jewelry is an heirloom to be cherished through generations.
Her first design was the Love Pendant – a silver interpretation of a flower image from one of her paintings with a jeweled center and her signature message: This is the simple truth. You are Love. Flowers -daisies, marigolds and roses-are a recurring motif in Amy's artisan-crafted silver pieces. Adorned with semi-precious gemstones and inscribed with hidden messages of love, the designs combine elegance and fun with poetry and art.
Passionate about the earth, mind, body and soul, Amy mixes vivid colors and patterns for maximum impact, with meticulous attention to detail. She is inspired by her extensive travels throughout India, Mexico, Africa, Australia and Europe, as well as by the natural splendor and history of her homes in Santa Fe and Florence. Utilizing the centuries-old method of lost-wax casting, silver is then washed, filed and polished by hand. Intricate pieces are naturally weighted and perfectly balanced, imbuing their contemporary design with tradition. The line includes cuffs, pendants, earrings, rings, necklaces, chains and belt buckles named after Amy's poems, including Magic Happens and Simple Truth.
As part of her mission, Amy established a foundation, Love Truly Matters, using proceeds from Amy Conway jewelry to fund non-profits that empower women and girls. Love Truly Matters has worked with Girls Inc., a national organization that teaches girls to be strong, smart, and bold as well as the Saint Elizabeth Shelter of Santa Fe, and The Retreat of East Hampton, New York, both of which provide homes for women and children fleeing abuse. Amy is actively involved in the international art world, lending her expertise, time and support to the annual Santa Fe International Folk Art Market, an event that provides a venue for indigenous artists to sell their work, sustaining villages around the globe.
