ABOUT THE ARTIST
Amanda Brittin's silversmithing takes her into many design adventures with her hand-forged jewellery. Amanda has a B.A. in Anthropology and Archaeology, but she has had a passion for art since she was a kid and has managed to mix the two together her work.
Amanda's jewellery work is rustic, using silver, gold and bronze and a mix of gemstones to create wearable art. "I often pay homage to ancient bronze age metalsmiths, adding my own modern take to the work of the past". Her penannular pin and two-part pins are inspired by some of those traditional designs.
Amanda has been a part of the Uxbridge Studio Tour and other Durham Region shows many times over the years, developing a strong client base and forming many close friendships here. "The amazing artistic talent that Uxbridge boasts is both inspiring and practically helpful to me in my own work. Whether looking to a mentor for advice or just enjoying the art of so many spectacular artists, Uxbridge is my "go to" place!"
