About Dawn…
I picked up my first torch when I was 14...that was 30 years ago. Crazy. I graduated in 1993 with a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. In 1998, I became an artist-in-residence at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, Virginia. I laugh a lot, love rice cakes and wish there was a speed water-drinking contest somewhere. My favorite part of the day is when everyone is in the studio with NPR or Pandora on and we're trying to get some work done in between outbursts of laughter and snack breaks. I'm living happily ever after in a cute yellow house outside of Washington DC with my dog Donut and Guinea pig Piggy.

About poppi…
Poppi is my fun and clever alter ego. It’s a line of jewelry that doesn't take life too seriously. The glass and sterling rings are my invention and are unique in that they stretch to fit most everyone. Poppi adds a splash of color to jeans or an extra spark to ignite a little black dress; heck, it'll even brighten up a trip to the grocery store.
If nothing else, it's a statement. Poppi laughs. Poppi flirts. Poppi screams. Poppi says it all without you saying a thing.
