Danielle Miller Jewelry
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I use clean, simple geometric forms to create elegant and comfortable jewelry with a playful twist. Many of my pieces have kinetic elements designed to attract and engage the wearer. The kinetic elements that I incorporate into these structured pieces add unexpected fluidity and movement. Pearls or stone settings may spin like a propeller, slide freely across wires like an abacus, or rock to and fro like a see-saw. These articulated parts rely on the wearer for motion, which can be a simple turn of the body or a deliberate manipulation of the movable parts. This dynamic aspect of the work creates an intimate and unique relationship between jewelry and wearer.

Welcome to crafthaus ! I am very glad you joined us.

There is always a lot of activity on the site, so it's great that you uploaded some images of your artwork already. Many of your fellow artists will be getting to see what you are doing and I am sure you will get some great feedback.

Please feel free to add your comments to the blog/discussion topics that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.

I really hope you will enjoy being with this network and find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me anytime. I will do my best to be of help.
