Amy Johnson is a jeweler and sculptor who lives in Boulder, CO. Amy received her MFA in Metalsmithing from Colorado State University. Both her jewelry and fine art draws inspiration from her background in activism, as well as the social, political, and environmental issues of our era. She is a conceptually oriented artist focusing on installation-based work while creating architecturally inspired jewelry for her boutique jewelry company. Her interests and special skills in metalsmithing include: fabrication, enameling, lost wax casting, welding, using nontraditional materials, and the cultivation of student’s voices and aesthetic within their work. Amy’s additional degrees include: Policy and Social Values, Peace and Conflict Studies, and Humanitarian Assistance. Amy is also an instructor at the Boulder School of Metals.
In her Jewelry classes at FRCC, students will learn how to create expressive and resolved pieces of jewelry— jewelry that is thought through and well executed.
