Dawn Wain ~ Nature's Jewelry
Dawn Wain's exquisite jewelry from nature, fashioned by her hands is something you want to gently touch to see what it feels like.
She creates large art pieces which are striking and yet, don't seem over the top, because of the patterns, colors and textures.
I've included a link to her website gallery, which gives you a better scope of her creations.
I visited with Dawn in person, and was delighted by her personality. She told me how she encourages customers and friends to increase the size of the pieces that they wear a little bit each year. She is a petite woman and her neckpiece included Asian paintbrushes as well as other large focals. She wore them with flair and although you notice it, it doesn't smack you in the face. Dawn mentioned that part of the trick is to wear clothes that coordinate with your very large necklace, so it seems more like art and blends in slightly with its background.
