Dazzling Designs Jewelry

24 Sep

For as many years back as she can remember, Jewelry Designer and Artisan Donia has felt a passion for all types of art. Growing up in rural America gave Donia an abundance of time to pursue her creative endeavors. Her family was blessed with several talented artisans, including her mother, grandmother, and three sisters. As the years passed, Donia pursued her love of art and to no one's surprise, combined her passion and expertise to create Dazzling Designs.

As a custom jewelry maker, Donia creates designs that women enjoy anywhere, anytime. Whether you're going to the supermarket or attending the Governor's Ball – Donia believes that her handmade custom jewelry (or wearable art as she likes to call it) is meant to be cherished through the years.

Donia says that most of her creative juices begin when she is relaxed. Many times when she is sleeping, she will awake with a new design in mind. Yes, Donia's creativity even extends to dreams about handcrafted custom jewelry. She envisions jewelry designs in autumn leaves, cloudy skies, falling water, mountain valleys, and other simple scenes that reflect the beauty of nature.

Donia's custom jewelry designs became so popular with family and friends that she found herself making unique pieces for customers across the nation. Now, 25 years later, she's still practicing the art of handcrafted jewelry, and feels that by so doing she's bringing a bit more joy into the world.

These designs have great colors for autumn and winter, are made with wonderfully ethnic and organic materials, and are very affordable.

Artist Statement

I was unable to find combinations of stones and colors that really got me excited, so I started creating my own jewelry. I chose semiprecious stones and sterling silver as my materials, because of the natural quality they radiate as art in the form of jewelry.

Handmade custom jewelry is very personal, but needs to be fun and wearable, too. The custom jewelry you choose makes a statement about you, and should make you feel good every time you wear it. So many women have custom jewelry that they don't wear because it's too high-end, specialized, or valuable to be worn in everyday situations."

I make handcrafted custom jewelry that is versatile and can be worn in more than one way, such as a single strand necklace that can also be worn as a double strand, or the same necklace worn with or without a pendant drop.

If you own a piece of jewelry created by me and it's showing a little wear (I call that Character), then I have succeeded.

    I love the Sultry Intrigue Necklace and I use their recycled beads in my jewelry frequently. It’s a great cause led by some pretty amazing people (and the beads are more beautiful because of the inspiring lives behind it!)
