Amy Katz has been part of the world of seed beads since 1993 as a student, teacher and designer. She has always admired and loved high-end jewelry. Several years ago when she began designing her own beadwork pieces, Amy made the decision to give them a fine jewelry look using seed beads, crystals, pearls and other fine materials. Using imagination, this vision has come to life as her signature style. Amy is currently teaching locally and nationally including the Bead & Button Show and Bead Fest Philadelphia. She is also the co-author of Beading Across America (Kalmbach Publishing) which will be released in Spring 2011.
