AMiRA jewelry began with a girl who loved to create. Every moment of every day was devoted to making things….paintings, sculptures, necklaces, drawings…so many things of the creative pursuit.
AMiRA jewelry was founded by Amira Axe (nee Mednick), an artist and creator from Connecticut who uses macrame techniques learned while traveling and volunteering in Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Chile and Uruguay to create unique pieces of body adornment. Each piece is a work or art. Each piece is thoughtfully created using metal work tools and techniques, stones, beads, fabrics, paints, and various other materials. All pieces are handmade with love and great creativity in Portland, Oregon.
