Since completing her post-graduate diploma in 2002 at Edinburgh College of Art, Donna has continued to develop her work while exhibiting both nationally and internationally. Working with soft metals such as silver & 18ct gold has allowed her to explore techniques of fusion in a new and exciting way.
Donna arranges petal like shapes into regular and irregular patterns, and fuses them together to create her own sheet. Larger neckpieces are arranged into a continuous cluster of floral units, while other pieces such as brooches and rings have layers of kinetic elements within them, which come to life when handled or worn. The overlapping of the petals create patterns themselves, adding to the overall design of the pieces.
