Amee Sweet-McNamara




Ask Amee K. Sweet-McNamara  why her fine-art jewelry business is called “Amee Runs with Scissors,’’ and she usually just laughs and says, “ Because it sounds a whole lot sexier than ‘Amee Eats Paste.’”

Working out of her southern New Hampshire home, Sweet-McNamara makes one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable-art textile-jewelry using a technique called “Soutache & Bead Embroidery” which involves hand-stitching yards and yards of soutache braid and hundreds of tiny beads. She is inspired by curvilinear shapes and unexpected color-combinations wherever she discovers them; fine art, movies, architecture, advertising. Sweet-McNamara writes books, contributes to craft magazines, sells her work through galleries and craft-shows, teaches both private and group classes at venues across the country and is a proud member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen.
