Dyanna Smith

Juried Member Since 2006

Dyanna splits her time between art and the environment. She is a silversmith and glass artist and her style is a mix of retro and romantic, preferring simplicity of design with color carrying the focus. “As a scientist I often find myself distracted by the designs around me: the curve of a spotted salamander, the brown and teal iridescence of a beetle’s shell. I use that now in my art. Dyanna owns Milkweed Cottage Studio, named in honor of her endless childhood quest for milkweed the host of the elusive monarch butterfly caterpillar. She is working on her PhD in Environmental Studies, and just introduced Milkweed Green, an eco-friendly line of glass jewelry using repurposed bottle glass
