Our Story

Welcome to Dani Art & Jewellery!

I’m Dani - artist, collector of shiny things and lover of colour & texture and I'm so happy you're here!

I believe in creating unique, handcrafted art jewellery pieces that are not only beautiful  but will stand the test of time and evoke emotion in those who gift or wear them and as such, all my pieces are finished with or created from precious metals, such as sterling or argentium silver and 14kt gold fill.

I have a passion for polymer clay and metal and have been working with both for over 15 years. The majority of my art is created from these mediums with a focus on my love of colour and textures used in a multitude of different applications.
Each of my pieces are slow made by hand - from designing and creating the feature components, to polishing, buffing and constructing the jewellery.

For me, creating is not only my passion but also therapy. I have sufferred from multiple chronic physical and mental illnesses throughout my life that have increased in number and intensity over the years. Every day, creativity (and my art supply and workshop business, The Whimsical Bead) provides me with focus, purpose and the opportunity to do what I love. Because of my ongoing health challenges, and therefore my inability to spend as much time in my studio as I'd like to, my pieces are fewer but are filled with more love, joy and passion than ever before.

Thank you for sharing in my journey and my creativity.
I am so pleased to have you here and I hope that you find something that speaks to you, that you absolutely must have or perhaps the perfect gift for someone special.
Please know that each and every purchase, message, follow on socials etc.  fills me with much joy and appreciation so thank you.

Love Dani xx
