Announcement   Thank you for visiting my shop, please if you have a question about anything just ask.

My jewelry is a mix of what I like to wear and Native American jewelry art. Maybe the reason for the love of Native Amercan Jewelry is i just found out my Great gandfather was Geronimo.
Most of the stones and gems in my jewelry I dig for and cut myself. I would say my favorite stone to dig for and cut is Opals. I have opals from Nevada,Idaho,Oregon and of coarse Australia.

My photography is a glimpse into who I am. I do a lot of experimenting with old photography techniques. To get the look I want I will go to great lengths, such as building a camera to get the look I want, or drive 1000 miles to a location I think will give me that perfect shot.

I love the challenge of custom work. So if you want a one of a kind piece of jewelry or a custom portrait with my experimental photography contact me and lets talk.

Again thank you for visiting my shop and have a GREAT day!

About

Be True to myself

Hello. My name is Don Madden I consider myself an avid student of life and as a result have been blessed with a very diverse skill set and a temperament that is designed to create.
I believe ever since I was a child I have had this instinct for expansion and self growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one's own potential.
Throughout my years I have been a Educator, Welder, Dairy Farmer, Hydraulic Engineer, Small Business Owner, Driver, Salesman, and more recently Designer and Builder of completely self sufficient custom homes made primarily of reclaimed materials and recycled tires. I have a very broad base of knowledge and I give 100% to all of my endeavors.
I have always dabbled in the arts because that is where my true passion resides. In 1996 I entered a photography contest and two of my black/white photos won top honors. I was hooked, that was the day I dove in head first and began my creative work as a photographer on a full time basis. I have an eye for the unconventional and alternative processing techniques including pinhole, Polaroid transfers, hand tinting of black and whites. I am continuously improving my techniques and strive for utter perfection in my work. I have since had my photography in big company's and gallery's around the US and graced the pages of several company's marketing catalogs such as Costco, Euro-king restaurant, BeBe's and many more. I have done many one-man shows, which I prefer because it lets me meet and talk to those individuals who are interested in art and photography and build and form lasting relationships with those who purchase my art.
When I decided to expand my artistic endeavors I began with gold and silver jewelry, which has become my cornerstone and true love. I drew upon past knowledge from my days as a Welder. " I just had to scale down a little from welding 4" pipe to welding so small I look though a magnifying glass". I love the challenges and specifics that jewelry making affords.
My jewelry has been in shops and gallery's such as Oregon Caves gift shop, BeBe's, Crater Lake gift shop, Newport Aquarium Village gift shop, and many others throughout the West.
I have also Owned and Managed galleries in Washington state ,Oregon and Montana.

I am currently working out of my Solar Earth Home in the Outback of Oregon that I built myself.

Thank you so much for visiting my shop.

Don
