Donald Friedlich’s interest in art was stimulated by an encounter with an attractive jewelry designer on the ski slopes of Vermont. After this chance meeting, Friedlich decided to study jewelry at the University of Vermont and later at the Rhode Island School of Design. He likes to work in series and chooses unexpected materials and techniques to create a visual tension in his jewelry. For example, he often combines precious metals and gemstones with ordinary materials such as glass and slate.
