Diane Wright designs and handcrafts hammered sterling silver cuff bracelets, pendants and hand woven beaded bracelets and necklaces.
Her beaded pieces are made with traditional bead weaving stitches such as the Native American peyote stitch and South African Herringbone stitch. She creates a base out of Japanese seed beads and then adds Swarovski crystals, pearls, buttons, semi-precious stones to create handcrafted wearable art.
Although she is a Pittsburgh native, she lived in New York and Los Angeles while working to establish an acting career.
In 1983, she returned to Pittsburgh to teach theater and English at Pittsburgh public schools. She believes arts education should be available to all children because it leads to more creative thinkers.
