Hi, I’m Amy 👋🏼 thanks for stopping by!

Chico is a wonderful place to be an artist. The people here are warm and authentic, and there is an astounding amount of talent everywhere you turn. What I find most inspiring, though, is the rare and particular beauty in our parks and wild spaces – they really are like nowhere else in the world. A lot of my pieces represent our local flora and fauna.

As a maker, my background is mainly in costume and fashion design, and many of the concepts I found appealing in that realm are what drew me to silversmithing. I get a lot of satisfaction from finding the balance between creative expression and efficient planning. And of course I love that you can say something with jewelry about the way you see the world, and about who you are and what you love.

My family has been living here for the past hundred years, and I’m so lucky to be raising my own child among these beautiful parks and this amazing community. There’s truly no place like it ❤️

Joy Garden Jewelry is entirely made from ethically sourced silver and gemstones, and is inspired by all the things that fill us with happiness.
