Brief History of the Shop

A Lancaster Mainstay, where all have always been welcome

Since 1984, j.a. Sharp Custom Jeweler has been providing generations of Lancaster County with original and timeless jewelry designed and handcrafted by previous shop owner and artist, Jude Sharp, and other American-made artists.

In 1989, Andrea joined the j.a. sharp studio, and after a brief stint at other local, high-end jewelry stores she came back. Having worked with manufactured pieces, she missed the creativity and connection with customers that custom jewelry design offered.

In November of 2019, Andrea M. Amey bought the business from Jude Sharp bringing in a new generation to the helm. Both Andrea and Jude continue to work together on custom jewelry and curating a collection of new American jewelers and artists in-shop and online.
