Thanks for stopping by,  I’m working on this site myself (always the do it your self-er!) so it’s still not quite done.  I’m getting close…. please come back often.

It’s true… I stopped making jewelry, closed the retail jewelry store stopped selling wholesale.  All with the plan to rest, relax and smell the roses as the saying goes!  Ha!   I’ve just replaced one obsession with another!  Since the fall of 2012 I’ve studied Art with some of the best designers, quilt makers and colorists on the planet.  I’m wildly grateful for all I’ve absorbed from each of these great teachers.  While I continue to build my artist’s muscles I’m in the studio daily, sewing, designing surface patterns and preparing for my teaching gigs.  In my art,  I’m drawn to dynamic, complex abstract designs.I’m not afraid to use all the tools in my belt.

Wander around the site still under construction… should be done very soon…….

Very soon, I’ll offer some of my quilts, hand-dyed fabric, fabric and other items made from my surface pattern designs and oh yes, a few jewelry items for sale on this website. Please check back again soon or email me if you are interested in something particular.

Thanks, Donalee
