Handcrafted jewelry from designer Danielle Vivio offers limited-edition and one-of-a-kind custom pieces for everyday wear and life's most special occasions.
Ornamentation is as ancient as mankind itself. We naturally decorate our bodies, homes and posessions for comfort and as a sense of individuality. The jewelry I create is inspired by a variety of objects, both natural and man-made: Modern and ancient architecture, botanical specimen, jewelry from past civilizations, and personal experiences throughout my life. Many of my designs incorporate diamonds, pearls or gemstones, and regularily include non-precious materials such as wood, stone or found-objects. The concern is not the initial value of the materials, but the contrast and textures created by combining them to invoke a new significance and aesthetic of the union.
