Amanda Lee Slaughter

Amanda Lee Slaughter believes in reincarnation—at least when it comes to silverware.

“I love thinking that I'm honoring the past life of the vintage spoons I use,” she says of her hammered metal pendants featuring pressed flowers.

The Southwest Virginia artist also believes in drawing inspiration from her mountain surroundings, combining her love of old things with her love for nature to create wearable treasures with a story.
