Donna Designs Wearable Art ... One of a Kind, One at a Time.
Come see us at the Waterfront Shops in Duck.
K-Bay is an Outer Banks native and has been collecting sea glass for as long as she can remember. She creates her jewelry exclusively for Donna Designs, using only genuine sea glass. Tidal shifts, currents, and pounding surf contribute to the frosted patina of the glass. Color usually determines the rarity of the piece. Size, shape, and irregularities such as bubbles and texture, also add to the significance. K-Bay studies each nugget before she turns her beach find into a treasure.
