Amy Wilderson is a Minneapolis-based jewelry artist who creates conversation-starting jewelry art that taps into memory, culture, and heritage. She revives forgotten treasures along with discarded items and reclaimed metals and connects them to gemstones that are associated with myth, power, and healing,
to create wearable, living stories.
Her jewelry is featured on Springboard for the Arts’ Ready Made platform, in Next Avenue’s Vitality Arts series, and was exhibited in Minneapolis Institute of Art’s Foot In The Door 5:The Virtual Exhibition. She is the recipient of grants and fellowships from the Minnesota State Arts Board, Springboard for the Arts, United States Artists, CERFplus, and Luminary-NYC.
As a teaching artist, Amy is trained in Creative Aging/Vitality Arts/Artful Aging methods. She is a member of the SistaSmiths jewelry artist collective, the Black In Jewelry Coalition, MN Artists, Metalsmith Society, and the Northside Artspace Lofts community. Amy earned a BA in communication from Tulane University.
