Amy Sala - AmiCentric Designs - About The Artist
Amy Sala is third generation Oak Cliff, a small artistically diverse community south of downtown Dallas.
In the past, Amy has experimented with various artistic mediums. She is self-taught and has a natural gift. In 2005 she discovered her true passion, beading. Although her work is always evolving, her eye for design, use of color, and intense attention to detail is constant, making her jewelry beautiful pieces of wearable art.
Amy works with a variety of materials, which include semi-precious stones, pearls, crystals, exotic wood, shells and various glass beads. She recently began to incorporate chain, ribbon and leather into her pieces. Rarely will you see two pieces exactly alike. Her jewelry is versatile, delightful and eclectic.
She enjoys experimenting with unexpected combinations of materials and styles. By incorporating vintage pieces and unusual thrift store finds she fashions some of her more interesting work. Working one on one with a client allows her to create a custom piece that is truly their own, expressing their distinctive personality and unique style.
Throughout the years she has donated many pieces to non-profit organizations and fundraisers, including Shaken Baby Alliance and the Phoenix Project. She has shown solo at Salon On Bishop and alongside other talented local artists at The Wine Therapist and Chi Gallery.
