From an extensive background in horticulture, I create jewelry that is nature-related, whimsical, imaginative, and classy. Incorporating various metals such as sterling silver, gold-filled, and colorful enameled copper with additions of crystal, glass, and semi-precious beads. A lot of my style is OOAK (One Of A Kind). While keeping everything priced affordably, the majority of the products used are made in the USA.

Donald's work is entirely designed and fabricated by himself and has been exhibited at fine craft shows in Pennsylvania over a period of more than 20 years. His jewelry is focused on the use of precious metals, often using semi-precious stones to provide effect and color. A recent deviation in his metalwork has been to introduce fine silver filigree work in part or in total, allowing memories of past days to re-enter more modern designs.
