I have focused on the jewelry arts for 30 year. My  inspiration comes from our beautiful mother planet we live on.  Spending most my life in the american west has given me such an appreciation of the wonders of nature. I Attempt to humbly capture the mystery, humor and beauty that exists around us and work to breathe that life into my work. I feel honored to carry on a long tradition of working with my hands and heart, using ancient techniques and tools. I have  shown my work all over the nation and internationally, including the Smithsonian Institute of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, American Craft shows in Baltimore,ACE in Evanston, Aaron Fabor gallery in New York City.  My work has been published in many publications including Lapidary journal, American Craft, Niche magazine, Lark Books "500 Brooches", and "the art of making Jewelry". My work has had many incarnations along the way, but my aesthetic and craftsman ship have been constant. Please don't Hesitate to contact me to discuss your future jewelry project, or simply use the drop down cart and buy button if you like a Piece of jewelry on my website.      Sincerely Nancy Daniels
