About me

Industry Arts
Location London, Arkansas
Introduction I'm Dana and I am an artisan living in London, Arkansas. I was born and raised in California's San Francisco Bay Area, where art in all forms was a carefully nurtured passion. I began crafting jewelry at a very young age, creating my first beaded daisy chain around age 5. I bought my first pair of pliers at 16 (that new drivers license took me straight to the mall!) For several years I taught 4th grade art through the local Arts Center here in Arkansas. Today I bend wire and play with fire, turning metals and gemstones into wearable works of art and a heart felt expression of my creativity.. I am inspired by just about everything and my style leans towards vintage romantic. When not bending wire and playing with fire, I'm taking care of my wonderful family and putting my college training to work by managing the office aspects of our construction business. If that weren't enough to keep my hands busy I'm also working on the finishing details of our new home and studio that I designed and we built atop a hill in the beautiful Arkansas River Valley, where the breeze dances with the tree tops. All of which I blog about here :)
