It's been a while since I've done a feature! This week's featured seller is Danielle from Anchored Archer.
My passion for jewelry began when I was a child roaming through antique
stores with my mom every weekend. Being no more than three feet tall at
the time, the only thing at eye level was the dazzling displays of fine
I've always been in motion and in search of a creative outlet. I've
experimented with and taken classes in every genre of craft and arts
possible, including painting, drawing, sewing, crocheting, and photography.
While I enjoyed all of these crafts, I never really felt satisfied and I
still needed a way to keep my hands busy when I got home from my day
job as a mechanical engineer. This mindset is what eventually brought me
to jewelry design.
A strong believer in DIY with a deep curiosity for
discovering how things are made, I dove head first into jewelry making
desiring to make my own versions of gorgeous items I coveted
in magazines. What began as a small hobby has become a serious labor of
love. My analytical and detail oriented background has given me the
ability to teach myself techniques as I've needed them and to find new and
inventive ways to apply my inspiration.
My work is inspired by many vintage themes, from intricate Victorian
fashion to the natural swirling forms of art nouveau architecture. My
ideas take these grand, romantic themes and traditional techniques and make
them relevant to today's modern fashion.
