I find it very difficult to articulate my art in a way that is authentic but not overly plain – I make jewelry. I find great joy in the process and while all of my practice is informed by the structure of rules, I frequently break them to realize my vision. I love the imperfect, that is a guiding principle in my work, all of my pieces are intentionally hand hewn and I seek new ways to play with color, texture and form.
There is an addiction that occurs when you are a craftsman, the love of the material shapes all that you see, so really everything that I absorb serves as inspiration and makes for an ever evolving brand that celebrates and honors the uniqueness of what is original, flawed and sublimely beautiful.
So for 7 years I have been fabricating, experimenting, challenging and creating. The work is my meditation, what is produced is what I offer back in gratitude. I believe that jewelry is personal. It is art adorned.
With curiosity and experimentation, I have produced an eclectic body of work that I hope represents the whole dani – fun, complicated, beautiful, weird, memorable and most importantly perfectly imperfect.
