Art and fine crafts have been a passion for over 45 years for Amelia Originals. She says "I finally returned to my first love of being totally immersed in the arts. I started out as a contract teacher with an adult arts and crafts program on Andrews AFB. Shortly afterward I was hired to manage the sales supply store and teach. Then eventually I was promoted to the Assistant Director position and finally the Director. This was the perfect job. Where could one earn money to encourage and assist others in finding peace of mind through creativity? Unfortunately this program was closed and my life changed putting my artistic endeavors into a hiatus, to only be brought out for the occasional handmade gift that was needed. My inner desire to create rushed forward earlier in 2008, and a burning desire to delve into something constructive, developed into this passion to create jewelry. I have always been fascinated with color, form and line. And wire sculpture/wrapping is now my preferred quest. I am committed to excellence."
