About

I’m Donny Jenkins; Metalsmith, jewelry designer, custom engraving artist, husband, dad and owner of Preston Belle Designs.  I was a bench jeweler & gold smith for 17 years working in the corporate box until November 17th, 2017. I made the decision with the support of my wife to leave the 9-7 grind to build my own business and life by design. I knew as an artist this was the direction I wanted to go in so I could creatively expand and produce one of a kind handcrafted pieces. Collectively as a family we knew we wanted to travel, live a fuller life together, construct our own vision and no longer be tied down to building someone else’s dreams – but rather put in the work to build our own. My wife Ashley heads the marketing, photography and most writing of our blog pieces.

My studio is home based where I create through castings, hand engraving, metal art, and jewelry making. Take a look at  “MEET THE TEAM” to see more. Thanks for stopping by and welcome to my blog!
