Call me bias if you must, but I felt it was high time I gave a shout out to my favourite jewellery designer. Yes we to both happen to come from the small fishing town of Grimsby, and yes her workshop happens to be around the corner from my home, but all that a side. The Jewellery really is to die for! Stunning design – simplicity is key, beautiful pieces you’ll cherish forever.
‘Graduating with a Degree in Jewellery Design from Central St Martins, Daniella’s passion for jewellery inspired her to set up her business in Cleethorpes – Lincolnshire. Designed and handcrafted in her boutique studio/showroom her pieces boast rustic charm and timeless elegance, an amazing collection that appeals to all ages.’
‘Every piece is incredibly unique having been designed and hand-made by Daniella herself.
Each piece of jewellery can symbolise dreams, hopes, feelings, loves & friendships transforming each piece into a cherished keepsake.’
The Perfect Gift
‘Daniella’s jewellery is so distinctive both in its unique style and beauty that it makes for a perfect gift whether it’s for a special occasion, like a milestone birthday, wedding, engagement, anniversary, confirmation, christening or it’s an impulse purchase that brings joy to the people we love.
‘Should you want something wholly unique, Daniella is happy to work with you to create something extra special.’
WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY WORKING IN JEWELLERY DESIGN?
I start with emails and a cup of tea. Followed by orders and then if I have a little spare time I’ll make up some stock. I try to use my time and energy as efficiently as possible, this helps to keep me focused.
PERSONAL HIGHLIGHT SO FAR?
I have recently made a few engagement rings that have been a huge success so that’s a great highlight for me, Its so nice to be involved in such a special momentous occasion and to know that that piece of jewellery will be worn and cherished forever.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
My style is very simple, relaxed, I like things to be practical and strong. The Ancient Greek and Roman jewellery in the British Museum has always been a huge influence on my designs, I love anything that looks like unearthed treasure!
ITEM YOU COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT?
IF YOU WERE A FASHION ACCESSORY WHAT WOULD YOU BE?
