About Dobi Designs...
My fascination with things that sparkle and shine started when I was a child. I love to watch the way light hits things and either passes through, bends or bounces off and creates beautiful sparkles, flashes of light and color and little rainbows.
Over the years, I used Swarovski® crystal beads to make jewelry. I love the way the beads sparkle and the light dances when it shined on them. One of the early bracelets I made and by far my favorite one to this day was made with an assortment of Swarovski® beads. I put it on a windowsill one day and when the sunlight shined on it, it created little sparkles, flashes of light and rainbows all around the room. It was incredible. It made me feel happy - like one of my angels was sending me some smiles to brighten my day. I started hanging that bracelet in the window when I wasn't wearing it just for the pure joy it gave me when the sunlight made it sparkle.. That's where my idea to make sun catchers using Swarovski® crystal beads and prisms was born about twelve years ago.
Since then, I have experimented with many different beads, prisms and color combinations to make sun catchers of different shapes and sizes. All of the sun catchers are handcrafted by me in the USA with love in a bright, sunny studio. These gorgeous pieces of art are hanging all about. The splashes of light and rainbows when the sun shines through my windows are absolutely incredible! It gives my spirit such a lift! I'd like to share the beauty and positive light energy with you.
My goal is to bring little rainbows, sparkles and smiles to the world...one window at a time.
Make every day sparkle!
