Amethyst earrings and pin setOver twenty years ago, in 1987, after spending several years in retail management, Dru launched her own metalsmithing venture; Designs By Dru.

Inspired by nature, I am drawn to simple organic shapes and forms to use in my designs.  Most of my work is done using construction techniques, but I also utilize lost wax and sand casting.
