The jewelry of Donna Hiebert, designer/maker, combines the quest for
precision with a fascination for sacred geometry, ancient
architecture, and the rhythms of the natural world. Her pieces are
executed in precious metals and gems by the use of traditional
fabrication techniques, machining, and the use of a hydraulic press.
"I trained and worked in sculpture for many years. It is my
aim, at this time, to make jewelry that embraces and reflects
the remarkable beauty and exquisite functioning of the human
body. The technical and design possibilities in jewelry are
limitless - there is always more to learn."
Donna Hiebert has formed Donna Hiebert Design Inc., a company which
reaches U.S. buyers primarily through select wholesale shows, and
locally through individual commissions. She has been a recipient of
numerous Canada Council Grants, has exhibited her artwork
nationally, and her sculpture entitled "Containment", in the
permanent collection of Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia
Canada, was awarded a Canadian Cultural Property designation.
