About The Artist
Dawne's interest in crafts and artistic design began in high school,
when she embellished a favorite jean jacket with rhinestones and then
fancifully embroidered a jean skirt that she treasured. While sitting in
a local restaurant modeling her endeavor, an eager patron offered her
$100 for her jacket, leaving a very favorable impression in regards to
her talents. Alas, she returned home "jacket-less", but with a smile
on her face.
Following sewing, needle-point, and several macrame necklaces, she
dabbled in both hand-tooled leather book cover jackets and writing
In college, Dawne took classes in metal smithing, her only formal
training. All other artistic ventures have been self-taught. She
maintains an interest in stained glass and dichroic glass making but is
currently more inclined to pursue designing jewelry with high quality
beads, crystals, and several types of pearls. Her ability to create
artistically pleasing pieces with color and style is evident in the
many offerings available to peruse on her website.
One of Dawne's necklaces and exquisite crystal chandeliers has
recently been selected and awarded a place in "Fire Mountain Gems and
Beads" catalogue. All work on this website can be ordered and
personalized by Dawne.

After receiving many positive acclaims and praise from the numerous
gifts she bestowed on her family and friends, she was encouraged to
allow others to obtain her jewelry and unique designs.. Using high
quality materials along with reasonable prices offers an additional
incentive for those who desire customized pieces.
