This is a studio with designs that have a little romance, femininity, and rustic charm about them.
Donna is a true artisan. She is both a jewelry designer and a metal smith.
Ten years ago she began making jewelry as a hobby and as a strategy for stress relief. Donna says, " My day job can be very stressful at times, and pounding on a piece of wire in the evening seems to make things better".
(I'm so glad to hear that she's not pounding on her head :o) LOL ).
Anyway, after a time making jewelry became more than a hobby for her, it actually became a passion--as many us well know.
Some of Donna's favorite materials for her creations are wire ( sterling silver and copper), gemstones, crystals, and all kinds of beads.
This jewelry artisan really loves what she does and has a strong desire to create "exquisite pieces" that can be worn and enjoyed for a lifetime. Donna's strong creating spirit comes straight from of her heart.
Donna comes from the beautiful state of Arizona where the beautiful Rockie Mountains, Grand Canyon, and desert are strong influences for her south western designs.
With all that said let's take a look at some of the fabulous pieces that are showcased in "Ctybydonna":
