The Jewelry of Donna Knox
Broken & Renewed Glass Art is the embodiment of my journey into mixed media jewelry which began over 25 years ago when I started working with stained glass in Tucson, AZ. After moving to St. Charles, MO I was introduced to glass fusing loving the dynamic way colors can change when heated in a kiln. The variety of color possibilities is inspiring.
Learning to wire wrap became my way to turn the cabochons into pendants, bracelets, earrings, and other accessories. My wirework is considered organic in nature because I don’t follow a pattern. I am currently working with hand-painted porcelain cabochons…which are colorful and lightweight.
Throughout the years, I have taken classes to learn different techniques. These classes include Kumihimo cord and bead work, a unique addition to my portfolio. along with a variety of new wire wrapping/weaving techniques. I continue to learn through classes and online sources drawing inspiration and encouragement from them. This allows me to continue my passion of creating unique pieces of wearable art.
