“Each piece of jewelry I create is deeply personal to me and I send it into the world with good vibes for the person it will adorn,” says the artist.
Born and raised in Bavaria, Germany, Claudia Amling currently calls the beach community of Santa Cruz, California home. The dramatic beauty of the Monterey Bay, where the fog-draped redwoods flank a majestic coastline, is reflected in all of her handcrafted Sterling Silver jewelry creations. Her many ocean & nature textured designs are inspired by the surrounding beaches and beautiful nature of her California home.
Claudia Amling loves to create modern but timeless jewelry designs in silver & gold. For the Silver creations she handcrafts original components from Precious Metal Clay (PMC). Because of her passion for versatile she textures the soft silver clay using texture plates on the front and back so creations are reversible. During the firing process in her kiln the silver clay transforms into a piece of solid silver which she completes with chains, paracord or semi-precious gemstones in her spacious and light Santa Cruz studio.
