In 1969 during her junior year DeWitt quit college and moved from Champaign, Illinois with her then husband, jewelry-maker Tom DeWitt. Upon their divorce in 1980, Amanda continued the workshop solo. A number of factors have led customers to appreciate her work. One is the fact that her forged jewelry is handmade and one of a kind. Another is the artisan-artist aspect of her business. She is an artist; “True artists put a part of their soul in their work, and I put something of myself in each piece I do,” she said. But like a true craftsman, she works by herself, not only making the jewelry but also running her own shop. Her jewelry is not sent to a sweatshop or a third-world country to be mass-produced. While her designs are classic and pure in their simplicity, so is their realization as she produces her jewelry. She retired from jewelry making in 2011 and passed away in Feb. 2018.
