Dawn Lombard

"Beauty that comes from chaos amazes me, be it the creative tempest brewing inside my head or the seemingly insignificant scrap of metal and glass that awaits transformation. My imagination knows no bounds, and my creativity thrives on experimenting with new ideas. The design phase of my work is a journey that often involves trial and error, yet I remain undaunted in my quest to bring it to life."

Dawn has always been drawn to art and design, but her day job left little time for her creative pursuits. However, the desire to create never left, and she knew that she had to take a chance and pursue her passion. Over time, Dawn honed her skills and developed a unique style that combines her love of color and whimsy with her expertise in metalwork and glass. Her pieces are vibrant and playful.

In a world where mass-produced jewelry dominates the market, Dawn's creations stand out as unique and special. She does not rely on templates or pre-set designs but instead formulates her pieces through self-experimentation, pushing the boundaries of her skills and creativity with every new creation.

Dawn's unique approach to jewelry making has resulted in creations that are a reflection of her personal journey. Each piece produces tells a story of the challenges she has faced, the skills she has acquired, and the creativity she has cultivated along the way. Her jewelry is a testament to her dedication to her craft and her passion for creating pieces that are true works of art.
