Amy Tamblyn is a young eccentric who counts designing convention-breaking jewellery as well as pulling beer within her unique skill set. A character from around the way, Tamblyn has the type of talent that is so rare it is hard to believe she lies relatively undiscovered. Working largely with silver and gold to create her inimitable jewellery pieces, Tamblyn’s designs concentrate on glorifying movement.
“My pieces are visually challenging to some but they aim to empower the wearer. They aren’t throw-on pieces. They need to be considered, as I have considered them,” she says.
Indeed the appeal of her work lies largely in the dynamism of her designs, be it a delicate earring so unfamiliar in form one can’t help but be enticed, or a sharp set of cuffs that create lines like some sort of kick ass Boccioni. All of which is seemingly far from the designer’s roots. Raised in a little town in Devon, England, known for “Scrumpy Jack cider and skanky junkies”, Tambyln has called Sydney home since 1998. She can often be found wearing mismatched vintage and working her butt off running the hot spot in the Spanish district called GoodGod.
