About the Artist

Jill Dunn, is a graduate of Michigan State University. Each piece of Jill Dunn Designs jewelry is designed by and created by the artist. Jill uses a variety of metals and alloys that display themselves in the richness of her work. When you own a piece of Jill Dunn Designs jewelry, you own a one of a kind creation and not something produced in mass quantities. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.


One of the great joys in life is discovering the diversity there is in our surrounding world. Whether it is visiting a new country or a new dazzling vista of nature, each experience opens my senses to a world of new sounds, smells, sights, tastes and textures. With each new experience I take away a mental memento of the occasion and try to incorporate it into an original jewelry design.


After forty-two years working with intellectually and developmentally delayed children and adults, you become acutely aware of both the uniqueness of people and the common attributes shared by most. Jewelry is very similar in this regard. Although a bracelet or a pendant share common pedigrees forged over thousands of years, the jewelry design artist is able to put their unique personal touch on a creation. While colors and metals have largely stayed the same over the millennia, jewelry design offers the artist a world with no boundaries.


During her long career in business, every ounce of creativity and vision were required to keep my not-for-profit agency viable. She has always believed that success is a journey and not a destination. Her jewelry work encompasses this philosophy. Jewelry design has allowed her to channel creativity and an interest in processes into a new and exciting direction. Using silver, brass and copper as her base foundation, she enhances her jewelry by adding interesting etching, chasing, forging, patina, stones and shapes. Each piece is its own journey and shes reaches the final destination without the benefit of a map. The voyage of artistic discovery begins with taking a shape or texture from nature, such as a leaf or cloud and then molding it into a piece of wearable art that is attractive, original and affordable.
