Amee Sweet-McNamara

Working out of her southern New Hampshire home, Amee 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.
