2019 Artist: Donna Jo Wallace
Donna Jo Wallace of Naturally Nickel Free Jewelry in Des Moines had us running off to Google to look up niobium and argentium when we reviewed her application.
"I create jewelry a combination of wire wrapping, metalsmithing, chainmail, and beading techniques using raw niobium or argentium sterling silver wire. I use only nickel-free materials."
Even if you don't have a nickel allergy, you should check out her artistry at www.naturallynickelfree.com.
