Donna started making jewelry in early 2008 as a hobby and started wire-wrapping about six months later. Donna has worked with stained glass for years. A friend/mentor who has worked with dichroic glass for a long time asked Donna if she wanted to take a class with her. Her interest grew from there - it's the hobby that has grown wings.

A little bit more about Donna's craft and shop:
What is your favorite stone?
My favorite stone is the amethyst.
Do you make other crafts?
I've done some card making and crocheting.
What attracted you to Artfire?
It's newness and the ease with which you can do things. I'm not good with computers and their site helps a lot. I also like the way the different artists work together. They are a community.
Can your items be found anywhere other than Artfire?
I have my own website - www.glassandwiregems.com. I'm currently on Etsy too. I also have my pieces on consignment at two local stores.
Please provide a link to ONE of your favorite Artfire shops.
Tell me something interesting about you or your shop.
I love the desert and the mountains. Their beauty has always been amazing to me.
