Potrait of an Artisan~Dawning Jewelry

Jamie Hanson's words:

As a wee bonny lass, I found myself a visionary in the undying quest of consummate creativity. Even at the young age of four I could be seen carefully stringing together tiny seeds beads, instead of the large, colourful pony beads that were so popular for girls of my age. As I grew, so did my longing to create with my own hands.

For my whole life I have loved the feeling of holding in my hands something beautiful that I’d created. Jewelry, of course, was always one of those things, but I certainly have experimented with most of the traditional crafts. Since childhood there has always been something creative in my hands, be it knitting needles, a block of wood, colourful fabric or my favourite black jewelry pliers.

At 12, I began selling my handcrafted jewelry through friends and home. Only a couple years later, I officially launched ‘Dawning’ and have enjoyed every moment since! My style of jewelry is constantly changing and being inspired afresh, but quality workmanship and beauty of design are always fundamental.

The jewelry consists of semi-precious stones, silver, wire, and whimsy made into necklaces, earrings, buttons and unique hair accessories that I’m confident will be among your favourites!
