Many of the ideas that she gets for her jewelry are based in nature, particularly how things move. Dorris’ materials vary from river rocks and beach stones to fragments of stained glass. Her objective is blending all of the components of a piece so that it functions as one cohesive piece of wearable art. Her taste for design is simple yet sophisticated.
In her other life, Dorris is an acupuncturist and herbalist with practices in Cambridge and Melrose, MA, treating the occasional patient in West Dover. Additionally, she teaches skiing at Mount Snow.
