Don Dewa began making jewelry in 1970, and by the early 1990s he started to produce mosaic inlay, having learned it from his mother-in-law, Loretta Quam Eriacho. He has become an absolute master at mosaic and channel inlay, and one of Don's most innovative and distinctive designs is his sunface spinner rings, pendants and bracelets, which are also for sale on our website.
