Growing up on Long Island, New York provided Dianna with the unique experience to be inspired by the bounties of nature and the bounties of an urban, cultural mecca. As a result her work balances organic, rustic elements, and urban grit; classical metalsmithing and contemporary design.
Dianna has a BA from University of Albany, New York. She studied the classical techniques of metalworking at Jewelry Arts Institute in New York City and Revere Academy of the Jewelry Arts in San Francisco. She uses eco-friendly practices such as recycling metal, conflict free gemstones and operates a “greener” studio.
