About Amy

Welcome to Amy Wilkinson Jewellery.

Amys studio/shop is called Studio One and based in the Manchester Craft & Design Centre.

‘ I feel fortunate to be based in such an inspiring place and work alongside other artists and makers.’

Having graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2003 with First Class Honours in Three Dimensional Design, Amy has continued to design and hand-make jewellery using precious metals. She makes a number of collections and continues to experiment and develop new work. Her main inspiration is driven from layering and drawing simple forms to build intricate three dimensional structures that play with shape and shadows.

Amy also uses her metal work skills working as an armature maker at Mackinnon & Saunders making stop-motion animation puppets – seen in films such as The Corpse Bride, Fantastic Mr Fox, Frankenweenie and ParaNorman and the Sainsbury Christmas Advert 2016. Also Childrens TV programs, Postman Pat, The Clangers, Twirly Woos, Raa Raa and Tobys Travelling Circus.

Studio One has a vibrant retail-workshop environment, run by independent jewellers; Amy Wilkinson and Charlotte Verity, and artist; Laura Richardson; the tenants of Studio One since 2008. Together they support existing and emerging designer-maker jewellers by exhibiting and selling additional collections of contemporary hand-made jewellery. Having this retail space combined with a workshop open to the public, enables them to produce their work whilst interacting and meeting the customers.

Manchester Craft & Design Centre is a unique organisation comprising of 19 retail/studio spaces, a café and a rolling programme of exhibitions.  Located in Manchester City Centre’s Northern Quarter, Manchester Craft & Design Centre is at the hub of a growing innovative and artistic community.  Once Manchester’s fish and poultry market, this striking Victorian building crowned with a huge glass roof now houses two floors of designers, contemporary craft workers and artists working in a wide range of media including ceramics, textiles, jewellery, glass and furniture.


Studio One is located on the ground floor near the main entrance
