Dana Evans - Jewelry Gallery


Dana Evans Studio
Lorton, VA. USA

My work is inspired by my love of stones, ancient techniques, and my architectural training. I create 'structures' for my stones to reside in, using ancient metalsmithing techniques such as granulation, keum boo and chasing/repousee. I love to put a modern twist and style on my pieces, and use influences from color, form, texture, pattern and my intuition in order to make the pieces my own.

Materials: Silver, Opal Dimensions: 1-1/2" x 1-1/2"

This ring features opals from around the world- a large Australian opal with a number of small Ethiopian opals to the side. And complete with a strip of granulation in between.


Fleur-de-lis Earrings

Materials: Opal, Silver, Gold
Dimensions: 2-1/2" x 1"

Gold foil has been fused onto the surface of these fleur-de-lis shaped earrings in a process known as Keum Boo. Argentium silver has been used to attach granules of silver and in between are cabochons of Australian opal.
