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. One of Don's most innovative and distinctive designs is his sunface spinner rings, pendants and bracelets, like the ring shown here.
CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL ABOUT A RECENT PURCHASE: I gave my husband the ring I purchased back in November. It was really difficult to keep it a secret but I succeeded. To say the least he was totally blown away when he opened the package. The ring is just amazing as is the matching bracelet he got for me. Thanks so much for all your help .. you are most welcome to use our feedback on the Don Dewa pieces. His workmanship is exquisite. Linda H.
