Deanna Dionne launched Cleveland Street Glass in Spring 2016. She moved to Cleveland in late 2014, when her car was broken into just a week after arriving. But she moved here to focus on her art, and that event stuck in her mind as she experimented with different techniques, and jewelry made from auto glass was born. She is inspired by Cleveland’s pride for not only where it’s going, but where it came from. It is proud of its grit, for grit is what it’s built on. Wearing a piece of jewelry upcycled from a malicious crime truly embodies a comeback spirit. Wear it as an amulet, and as a reminder that beauty is found from the raw and broken. Hang it in your rear-view mirror as a battle trophy.
