Sharon Donovan, a native of Michigan who sensibly transplants herself to Florida for the winter outdoor art show season, was born "attracted to shiny objects".
"As a child, my father would entertain me and my siblings by taking us downstairs into the
basement and to make things. Doll houses out of cardboard, paper clip butterflies, and JEWELRY for
my Barbie doll!"
"With glass pipettes and a torch, Dad made gray teardrop earrings and a pendant, on a tiny scrap of a silver chain. They looked a lot like gray pearls! With straight pins pushed into her head, my Barbie had earrings, and she got pierced ears before I did!"
