With an innate passion for beads and antiquity, Dannielle Carbone has spent a lifetime collecting, designing and creating her unusual and eclectic jewelry. Each bead is individually selected and hand-threaded to form a uniquely wearable piece of art.
Humans have been adorning themselves with jewelry for millennia. Beaded body decorations were created to celebrate and trade as well as symbolize status, faith and wealth.
Traditional local materials were carved, cast, beaten, and polished to create indigenous art that has survived through the centuries. In many countries today, these beads are still being made by local tribes and artisans who are keeping the traditions, and the stories behind every bead, alive…
Inspiration comes from the history ingrained in every bead, and Dannielle subtly balances and reflects that with an intuitive eye for complementary color and shape.
