Handmade in the mountains
By Amber Duncan
Inspired by travel and tradition, Mountainside Jewelry brings a rustic aesthetic into modern times with styles that strive to be timeless, cherished pieces. Delicate yet bold, designed to ignite strength and confidence as well as femininity and grace. Jewelry to be worn as both armor and amulet.
The combination of a lifelong love for treasure hunting, an unyielding artistic drive and the joy of creative fabrication form the basis for this small handmade collection of jewelry designs. Various styles are made using hammered metals, lapidary stone cutting, and the ancient process of lost wax casting. Amber gathers ideas and inspiration from museums, old books, architecture, folklore, family heirlooms and long lost vintage jewelry discovered in flea markets and antique shops. Her designs focus on movement, texture, comfort and simplicity. She is fascinated with the stories behind symbolic images and natural forms - the curious lore and sentimentality of objects and emblems, the past uses and mythologies surrounding gemstones and talismans. For each piece, a new story begins.
