Dawn Fischer's Profile
Hi, I'm Dawn. I've been making jewelry for over 15 years. I got started because of a severe allergy to Nickel, which is all too prevalent in manufactured jewelry. I never use materials that I can't wear in my ears or in contact with my skin. No nickel, no silver plate or gold plate, as these all cause allergic reactions on my skin. I was so excited to learn was this allergy is, because for years it kept me from being able to wear Jewelry, especially earrings, my favorite type of jewelry. When I learned that I could avoid nickel and wear jewelry without this substance, I was thrilled!! I could wear earrings again! And other pieces, too.
I've taken jewelry-making classes, silver-smithing classes, and I am also self taught. Practice is an important part of my creativity; practice has taught me how to create quality jewelry that will stand the test of time…
