About Ami Pepper
Born in Pembrokeshire West Wales, Ami’s collection of unique sculptural pieces of jewellery explores the intricate cluster formations of shells and life underwater.
By studying the traces of the tides and colours of the landscape, Ami encapsulates a sense of the coast, giving her jewellery an essence of the raw, organic treasure you can find there.
Taking on a growth process, the pieces are encrusted with barnacles like a shell would be over time under the sea. This is then translated into carved wax, cast, and encrusted with stones to form organic clusters.
Spending time on the shoreline, Ami studies the costal colours and gathers the natural forms found in the traces of the tides. Once back in the studio, Ami sculpts the wax in an organic way to reflect the natural growth processes found in nature, such as barnacle clustering.
Using the lost wax casting technique, the pieces are then cast into precious metals. The jewellery is finished by encrusting with stones to form precious yet organic wearable pieces that encapsulate an essence of rare treasure from the sea.
