Roper Lyons, Amy

Amy Roper Lyons is a studio jeweler and enamelist. Her work expresses her love for the wonderful variety of form and color found in the natural world. Inspired by her garden, and long walks along the seashore near her home, she creates one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces in high-karat gold, enamels, and gemstones.

Using a combination of enamel processes, including cloisonné, champlevé, and basse-taille, Lyons creates bold compositions of gold and glass. The metalwork draws from a broad palette of techniques, including fusing, forming, fold-forming, carving, chasing, piercing, and fabricating.

Her award-winning work has been published in magazines and books such as 500 Enameled Objects, Lapidary Journal, Ornament, and Art Jewelry Magazine. Lyons’s jewelry is exhibited nationally at museums, galleries and craft shows, recently at the Smithsonian Craft Show. Lyons has taught jewelry and enameling at the New Jersey Center for the Visual Arts, the Newark Museum, and teaches workshops at locations nationally. She received her BFA from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA.
