About The Artist

Daniela Boari • Brooklyn, NY

Before opening my jewelry design studio, I worked in an opera theater as a public relations professional. Life is an experiment to me, and jewelry is the most significant creative experiment of my life. I take risks to ensure that I constantly challenge my creativity. From my immigration from Italy to New York to leaving my career to pursue my passion for jewelry design.

Q&A with the Artist

Tell us how your work is made.

What makes you passionate about the medium you work with?

I am interested in bringing color to my work and I'm studying enamel and resins. In my everyday practice I rely mostly on silver -often oxidized- and brushed gold which bring attention to the inner beauty of gemstones. As light bringers, diamonds are the best- if a ring is a tale, a diamond is the hero that brings hope against a black pool of silver. But no matter the material I use - expensive or inexpensive- it always feels special to share even a tiny little thing with a customer.

What is something unique about you or your practice?

Sometimes I allow myself to scrape and score my pieces. When the work would otherwise be seen as “ready”, I start roughing it. I stab, melt, scratch - whatever feels right. I aim to find something, a path that won't and can't be repeated. In those moments of quick decisions, I'm entirely and absolutely free of conventional aesthetics limitations.
