Welcome to my world, I'm Daniela Cardillo-Corr, an Irish based designer (with Italian roots). After spending some years working in the bustling jewelry world of Los Angeles, I’ve recently re-located back to the green pastures of Ireland. Due to the joys of technology, I continue to be involved with my work overseas, an ever present connect with my second home.
I was firstly drawn to the world of jewelry, as it combines some of my deepest values. Nature, sentiment and creativity. Earth’s natural elements combined with some innovation (and a touch of magic) ultimately results in wonders to be cherished, and passed from generation to generation.
I graduated from The National College of Art & Design, Dublin in 2011 with a BA in metal design. Following a stint creating wearable gallery focused art-forms, I returned to study fine 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. Offering services in many forms, from branding & creative direction, to sustainability and supply chain management. Not one to limit my creative path, I also pursue illustration and product design from time to time.
