Boston: Born just outside of New York City and currently living in Boston Massachusetts, Donna Veverka grew up going to the MET and has always loved Museums and antiquity. She studied at the University of the Arts, Philadelphia College of Art and Design. Donna received a BFA in metalsmithing, and an MFA in Sculpture at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Donna and her husband spent 6 months in Italy and still travel there extensively (10 trips and counting!) doing research in museums and historic sites to discover compelling forms that capture her imagination. We hope they capture yours.
Donna Veverka was trained as a metalsmith, blacksmith, and sculptor, she is a one-woman atelier. Working in silver using traditional techniques Donna produces edgy earrings, tuff cuffs and powerful rings for anyone with an adventurous soul.
The working process involves a combination of lost wax casting, hand-forging, and hand fabrication. Sterling silver is Donna’s medium of choice, with leather or custom braided cord used on necklaces for both style and comfort. Each chain is individually made with links formed, hammered or soldered by hand. Every piece is carefully finished with attention to hammer marks, burnished edges and contrasts between matte surfaces, highly polished accents and blackened silver to emphasize the sculptural qualities.
Donna works designing custom commissions, one-of-a-kind works and comprehensive collections for select shops, galleries and audiences at craft fairs around the US.
