I’m Amanda – the hands behind North Wind Silver. Originally from the high mountain desert of Southeast Idaho, I found my way to the coastal rainforest of Southeast Alaska in 2001 and have hardly looked back.

I pursued metalsmithing at the beginning of 2020. As a life-long maker who has studied painting, ceramics, printmaking, and textile arts, I was ready to learn a new skill, and I was instantly hooked. The craft and the community are both amazing, and I feel privileged to be a part of it.

Every piece that I make is created slowly and intentionally using basic tools, silver, stones, and heart. I strive to use stones that are ethically sourced from the United States (if possible), and use recycled metals in my work.

I hope you find something that you love, something that speaks to you.

I hope your jewelry follows you down every trail, over every mountain pass, across deep waters, and is passed down generations.

I am honored to have you here.
