Donya Lynn O’Brien
NY’s Metal Monk
After graduating from RISD in 1994, Donya dreamt of having her own collection. Her passion for finding a practical way to produce in the USA led to her making every single piece by hand. Accordingly, please allow 4-6 weeks for any pieces ordered to arrive. Slowly she built her business up until eventually her handcrafted work could be found in galleries and boutiques both across the country and overseas. Her work has been featured in major publications such at “In-Style” and “Oprah.”
Today Donya lives and works out of her storefront on the beautiful North Fork of Long Island with her son and new baby girl. She doesn’t take herself too seriously, considers herself very lucky to have such great fans, and is grateful to be able to do something she loves.
