I do love a burst of colour and here is a selection of Danielle Gori-Montanelli‘s stunning floral-inspired accessories which certainly fill that remit!
However for those of you who like a more muted colour scheme, she also has some monochrome designs as you’ll see further down in today’s blog post.
It was at Origin – The Contemporary Craft Fair in London last September that I first saw Danielle’s creations. I’ve never seen anything like them before! Have you?
They’re so intricate and detailed…and a lot of work must have gone into each one.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the very talented lady behind these designs…well, with a background in jewellery-making, American-born Danielle began working in felt after the birth of her first child, as she decided that she wanted to get away from the dangerous materials involved in metalwork.
She uses wool felt, cutting it by hand with metal shears and sewing with sharp needles to penetrate the layers which she uses to build up her three dimensional designs.
Apparently, Danielle never sketches before she starts a piece, but simply has a vision in mind.
Her core products are collars, necklaces and brooches, as well as hats.
