Meet Ashley Castro | Founder of Amethyst & Ash


Can you tell us about your back story on your passion for fashion that inspired you to create Amethyst & Ash?

I’m Ashley, Artist and Creative Visionary behind Amethyst & Ash. This journey started in August of 2020 after losing my bartending jobs multiple times during the pandemic. I decided to take a chance and start selling my handmade jewelry.

What inspires your jewelry? 

I love beautiful bohemian beach towns and the turquoise blue waters. My designs are inspired by the beautiful places I’ve traveled to, from the Caribbean Sea to the East Asian islands of Thailand.

Are you from Denver? 

I was born and raised in Denver, CO and all of my designs are handmade locally in my home studio. Colorado is home but the ocean holds a special place in my heart.

What are some of your favorite designs?

Some of my Favorite designs are from my 14k Gold Filled line. I am truly a gold girl at heart and Love that I can create unique gold jewelry that’s earthy and chic.

What do you love about Denver? 

What I love most about Denver is its constantly evolving Arts Scene and holding space for creatives, to empower us and showcase our work. This city takes artists serious and I’m so thankful for the love and appreciation our city has shown me.
