Wire Moon
Whimsical and bohemian handcrafted copper and silver jewellery. Copper homewares, original paintings and drawings, printed tote bags.

Hi, I am Amanda, a visual artist and jewellery artisan based in Yorkshire


My work is inspired by nature and childhood memories of growing up in Malaysia's diverse and exotic landscape. I also make use of my knowledge of natural sciences that I learnt during my studies as a Biochemist, often referring to cellular patterns and shapes.

I have been making jewellery and for over 12 years. It started with a simple kit and a pair of pliers I received as a Christmas gift but has now turned into my passion and life’s work. I specialised in wirework for many years and concentrated on traditonal techniques using no glue, heat or solder. In 2019 my work started to evolve and I began experimenting with textiles, sheet metals and patinas. I adore working with copper and it is still my go to metal. I love it’s feel, colour and malleability. As I work to no preplanned pattern, my ideas evolve completely organically and spontaneously which enhances my experience of the creative process so no two pieces are ever the same.

My desire to create is driven by the process of learning and experimenting and this is very much the case in my visual art too. My art and paintings are also very much derived from nature, using abstract organic shapes and forms I work mainly on paper with inks or acrylic.

My jewellery has been featured in Vogue Magazine, Making Jewellery Magazine and I have exhibited jewellery and artwork in various exhibitions nationally including The Tetley Gallery Leeds and Walford Mills Craft and Design Centre Dorset. My artwork has also been published by Princeton University as part of their academic book collection on Ecology.  

For the last ten years I have worked in the field of Arts and Mental Health. I help many people use creativity to enhance and improve their wellbeing, supporting them to venture into the arts as a career or use it as a cathartic excercise. Being creative can have huge benefits on how we feel and my own work as an artist and jeweller is incredibly beneficial to me.

Commission work is very welcome. Please contact us for more information.

Hope you enjoy browsing my store!
