Amanda Griffin Bolen creates unique wearable art inspired by nature and historical jewelry making techniques. Her work is handcrafted from copper and silver wire and polymer clay. She fell in love with wire in a sculpture class at Hollins University. She has reignited her love of wire sculpture on a much smaller scale with the jewelry she creates. Each necklace, earring, pendant, and ring is handcrafted, so even her favorite designs have inspired variations.
Amanda is a native of Carroll County, Va., and now calls Galax home. She has been a part of Chestnut Creek School of the Arts since 2014 as a student, a volunteer, a juried consignment artitst, and an instructor.
