Biography

It’s about clean shapes, whimsical yet elegant designs, combining precious metals with rich colors. It’s about the confidence you feel when you know you are wearing something that is exquisite and makes you feel beautiful.

Destiny’s Creations was born in 2006 by artisan Janice Doner alongside a successful career as a Paralegal. She began taking jewelry classes with a co-worker as part of a girl’s night out and for relaxation. It quickly became a creative passion. Within months she pursued classes in metalsmithing, wire wrapping, creating dichroic glass and metal clay.

The love that she experiences while designing a new piece of jewelry reminds her of the artistic joy she experienced in her early twenties as a make-up artist.

Her striking jewelry collection ranges in style from urban to classic elegance to ornate as she draws from frequent trips to estate sales with her mother and father during her childhood years. Her designs range from everyday casual, to bridal and evening wear.

At Destiny’s Creations every semi-precious gemstone or pearl has been individually selected from top suppliers throughout the world, and transformed into necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

Janice works with Art Clay Silver, fine silver, sterling silver, gold-filled wire, artisan glass lampwork beads, unique precious and semi precious gemstones and Swarovski crystals to create limited edition or one of a kind jewelry pieces.

All of the dichroc glass pendants are handcrafted by Janice. The lampwork beads that are a part of many of her jewelry pieces are purchased from artisans around the world, each unique in their style. Many are one of a kind and cannot be duplicated.

Janice is a certified Art Clay Silver instructor. Art Clay Silver is an eco-friendly metal clay, which is comprised of 100% recycled fine silver particles, organic binders and water. Oncethe metal clay is fired, the organic binders burn away and what is left is 99.9% pure fine silver.

Working with you to design an original piece of jewelry that fits your unique personal style is what she loves most. She has also been known to take a vintage piece, reconstruct it and modernize it.

Janice’s collections are sold online, through private jewelry parties, and at various fine art and artisan shows in Connecticut.  All of Janice’s work is handmade in her private studio in Windsor, CT.
