I'm Daniela Cardillo-Corr, an Irish designer (with Italian heritage) that currently resides in Los Angeles, California. I've been drawn to working in the realm of jewelry, as it combines some of my truest values. Nature, sentiment and creative magic. Natural elements combined with some innovation (and a touch of magic) create sparkling wonders to be cherished and passed from generation to generation.
I graduated from The National College of Art & Design, Dublin in 2011. Following a stint creating wearable art-forms (which luckily gained me renowned international awards), I returned to study jewelry further moving continents to attend the Gemological Institute of America, California.
My expertise lies in all facets of jewelry from 3D design to production and sourcing. I consult in many aspects from creative branding to sustainability and supply chain management. Not one to limit my creative path, I also dabble in writing, illustration, branding and product design from time to time.
