Join us in welcoming the artist for a pair of receptions at 656 Canyon Road on August 10th and 17th from 5-7pm. Show runs through August 19th.
Donna's works feature High Karat Gold, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire, Tourmaline, Amethyst, Fire Opal, Coral, Turquoise, Lapis, Pearl, Rainbow Moonstone, Jade, Opal, and Rose Cut Diamonds as well as any other Gem that catches her imagination while she's absorbed with a new creation.
Today Donna Diglio is consumed by her obsession for creating unique forms of distinctive High Karat Gold beaded jewelry. She finds pleasure sifting through her treasure of collected beads, gems, stones and gold from all over the world. Donna uses them to create Necklaces, Bracelets, Anklets, Lariats and Earrings for a collection she's called Donna Diglio Originals.
Donna fashions a matching "suite of jewels" with many of her designs. Mixing and matching the pieces is part of the fun. Bracelets can be connected together to form necklaces, they can be added to Necklaces to change the length. Multi-use is the key to originality. The creations are endless.
"I don't follow trends," she says. "I design original jewelry from my heart that I believe is beautiful. I enjoy designing a wearable piece of art. After all, a lady does like to sparkle."
Collectors say that Donna's work has an "Egyptian quality, look and feel". This jewelry designer loves 18 & 22 KT Gold and uses it abundantly in her creations.
When a piece of jewelry is complete, the artist finds that she is attached to it and wants to keep it in her own collection. "They are like babies to me - it is so hard to let them go."
Finally, Donna releases each new creation to the world and lets it become another collector's Gem.
