LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Lubbock metalsmith Dawna Gillespie was featured on Texas Country Reporter Sunday morning right here on KCBD NewsChannel 11.
Dawna Gillespie is a metalsmith and jewelry designer from Lubbock, with a BFA from Texas Tech University.
Dawna was only able to take one metalsmith class in her undergraduate studies, but she says the first time she picked up a saw she was hooked.
She has since found success as a nationally published and professional artist, “hand fabricating never-reproduced, statement adornments to defy a world inundated with mass-produced accessories.”
She says her work is influenced by the Baroque and Art Nouveau movements, as she focuses on themes of femininity, fertility, domesticity, marriage, and sexuality.
