Amy Waltz Designs - Owned by Amy Beth Gage-Waltz - Featured in Vogue Magazine, Amy Waltz Designs (AWD) Jewelry is one-of-a-kind, handcrafted in the USA, WEARABLE LOVE jewelry. Touted as the best-personalized gifts by Lucky Magazine, Huffington Post and WhoWhatWear, each piece is carefully and meticulously handcrafted in the USA by women who love what they do. With hidden personalized messages, symbolic stones, eco-friendly metals and sprays we seek to make jewelry that empowers, inspires and lifts hearts.

We aim to lessen our environmental footprint by upcycling, using recycled, non-conflict metals and stones, and Eco-friendly patinas and sprays. We seek to contribute to raising human consciousness by mindful actions, respectful intentions, and positive vibrations. And we hope that our jewels will help you do the same.

Each order comes purposefully and thoughtfully packaged with handwritten notes of inspiration that support the pulse of the jewelry, awakening kindness and propagating goodness.

It is my deep-seated intention that you will breathe in the message of the jewelry and that through it you will think more positively, respond to yourself with a little more heart, smile more, walk lighter on the Earth, let go of those things not meant for you, treat yourself and others in a gentler, kinder nature, and open yourself up to the sun on your face and the wind in your hair. And if you feel like dancing, well, then, by all means … DANCE. And when you do, let the rhythm of your heart carry you to your place of perfect present peace.
