 Press Releases

  • Architect. Painter. Feline Fancier. Soul seeker.

    Diane Dorsey’s aesthetic as a jewelry designer comes from a place of life experience. The soaring successes and the thought-provoking twists. Her ability to channel that spirit through noble metals is a testament to her skill as an artisan, sure. But more importantly, her essence as a woman who’s lived.

    Just hold a piece in your hands and you will feel the story that brought that piece to life.

    With a formal education culminating in a BFA in painting and architecture and an MA in Art Education, Diane’s work is informed by a technician’s knowledge of form and balance as well as an artist’s eye for scale and patina. Found objects collected around the world on travels with her husband inspired the first pieces and sparked a thirst to learn metalsmithing. “The Raven,” one of the initial creations from this period remains a coveted signature necklace and represents Diane’s love of all creatures great and small.

    But it’s Diane’s understanding of how all beings interact in this world that drives her designs.  Organic forms perfect in their original state – an egg, a staurolite crystal, a four-leaf clover. Both modern and pre-historic, raw yet elegant. Shapes that are cross-cultural symbols of communication from nature-made to man-made; labyrinths, petroglyphs or even a raven’s feather all manifest into precious silver and gold jewels.

    Her passion to work with respect to the stewardship of the environment, spawned Diane’s affiliation with Ethical Metalsmiths, Women’s Jewelry Association and the American Craft Council.  Committed to working exclusively with the rich integrity of recycled 18kt gold and sterling silver, each piece is a sculpture in miniature. Sensual to the touch, crafted with intention and quintessentially easy to wear. Forms and themes eternally feminine and powerful, just like Diane herself.

    Diane lives with her husband Ron and two Abyssinians Blubie and Sunny in the lush region near the Tesuque River in New Mexico.
