Amy Solis

I embrace the idea that jewelry can be used as a symbol of one’s identity. As a queer, undocumented, gender nonconforming person of color living in the U.S. I center my experiences as a form of empowerment, visibility, and representation. Jewelry and what we express with it can be a way to tug at the edges of the normal and center what’s in the margins, normalizing the “other.” My pieces sit at the intersection of jewelry and the language around identity politics. They decentralize cis-white-heteronormativity and question systems and institutions which have oppressed people who exist in the margins.
