The Purple Pomegranate, a fine craft specialty store, is featuring work by Seeley Lake jewelry artist, Dona Miller during the month of October. Dona’s love of jewelry began as a child, sitting on the floor for hours with her mom’s jewelry box. She began designing her own jewelry in high school and spent time studying the work of a jewelry designer and family friend. During her career in high tech, Dona traveled the world fascinated by the cultures and their use of color and texture.
After leaving the high tech world, Dona returned to her love of jewelry design. Her work is influenced by the places she has lived and traveled, bringing the textures of nature into her designs. Her love of stones is featured in her one-of-a-kind pieces which showcase the stones she has collected. Dona currently teaches classes in jewelry design and techniques. Her students continue to be an inspiration to her, fascinating her with the unique perspective each student has conceptually and artistically. Dona is an award winning artist. Her work is featured in stores and galleries throughout the Northwest and in print.
Meet Dona during Whitefish Gallery Night, Thursday, October 6, 2016 from 6-9 PM. Dona’s work will be displayed during the opening and throughout the month of October. The Purple Pomegranate will also be celebrating American Craft Week October 1-16th. For more information visit: http://americancraftweek.com/
