Falmouth, MA--At Swing Lane Studio, Donna Andrews-Maness works molten glass into blown hollow beads that are light as air, but tough as nails. She combines these beads with hand-forged sterling elements to create artisan jewelry with a sculptural sensibility. Using a variety of techniques, she is inspired to capture the fascinating interplay of light with glass. Her work is simple, yet powerful; sophisticated, but fun!
Donna has been following an artistic path her entire life. After an extended trip to Europe during college and visiting many art museums, she earned a B.A. in Art History from the University of Florida. Upon graduating, she moved to Boston for a job as Director of Continuing Education at The New England School of Art & Design where she continued her artistic studies by taking advantage of the many commercial and fine art courses offered.
