Amber Ruden Cedar Rapids, IA • Mixed Metal & Enamel

As an artist I am constantly finding inspiration through my environment. I love working with silver, and fabricating intricate designs through soldering.

I was first introduced to metalsmithing here in Dubuque, at Hempstead High School. Since then I have went on to receive my B.F.A in jewelry/metal arts from the University of Iowa.


I create pieces that catch the eye and engage the viewer.

My designs are playful, inquisitive, and focus on duality in life:

complexity vs. simplicity, organic vs. geometric, order vs. chaos.
