Welcome to DKTDesigns Fine Beaded Jewelry! Do you love to wear jewelry no matter what the day’s adventures bring?  You’ve come to the right place for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind beaded and wire-wrapped jewelry for your active and outdoor-loving lifestyle.  I’m Diane Thornton and I have been designing and making jewelry in Durango, Colorado, since 2004. My goal is to delight my customers with beautiful, wearable and well-made jewelry that evokes a connection to nature.

I’ve loved jewelry and accessorizing from an early age, and over the years my style has evolved to fit my active way of life.  I’m just as likely to be wearing a necklace and earrings under my bike helmet as with my LBD!  In 2005, I launched DKTDesigns Fine Beaded Jewelry because I wanted jewelry I could wear out on the trails as well as out on the town!

As a former professional mountain bike racer, I love to get outside on the trails near my home in Durango, Colorado.  It’s my version of a moving meditation.  Not only do I find inspiration here, these trails are also where I discover stones to wire wrap into pendants for my Durango Trails and Selkirk collections.
