Two sisters and kindred spirits, Diane Metz and Susan Bruno, together, they share their creative visions in jewelry creation and professional photography. Their nature photography draws you in, to share an intimate look at our world; images now presented as greeting and note cards, each handmade and individually designed. These artists discovered they each had a desire to design and create distinctive jewelry, distinctive to themselves as well.
Diane began creating handmade wearable art glass, which was a transition from designing and hand-making stained glass art windows. She transformed pieces of stained glass and dichroic glass, into wearable glass art in a multitude of colors and shapes, from hearts, circles, and free-form designs, each cut and fused, while layering different elements of design within each piece.
Susan studied jewelry wire wrapping and fell in love with wire and beads jewelry design. As in illustrator before photography, she has an eye for combinations of lines, color and texture creating jewelry for many personalities. Creations by ds designs and hand-make all their pieces, a natural expression of nature, art and love.
