Diane Wright creates handcrafted
jewelry specializing in hammered
sterling silver cuff bracelets and
pendants as well as off-loom bead-
woven bracelets and necklaces.
Diane is a Pittsburgh native. She has
also lived in New York and Los Angeles
as she pursued an acting career.
Returning to Pittsburgh in 1983, she
taught Theatre Arts and English at
Rogers Creative and Performing Arts
school, a Pittsburgh Public School
magnet until she retired from teaching
in 2008. It was then she turned her
attention to her other passion – the
creation of jewelry. A supporter of arts
education for all students, she believes a
strong foundation in the arts as children
creates adults who are successful
because they are divergent thinkers.
Diane selects high quality materials with
which to design. She uses a design
process that incorporates the artistic
elements of texture, color, composition,
and line. As with all art work, one of
kind handcrafted jewelry touches the
heart and the emotions. Jewelry
enhances a mood and creates a look.
My desire is that each piece that I create
becomes a piece of wearable art that its
owner will be proud to wear for many
years to come.
