Geometric Design

Growing up in a steel mill town in Pennsylvania, jewelry designer Danielle Miller knew that she wanted to be an artist by the age of 5. The beautiful rolling hills, juxtaposed by bridges, railroads and industry greatly influenced her design sensibility, and these different influences are married to perfection in her clean, geometric, and deceptively simple jewelry collections. Being the daughter of an architect, I have always been drawn to shape and form. Maybe that is why I am so drawn to Danielle's work. I totally appreciate the architectural aspects in her designs. Or maybe it's just because her work is so cool and beautiful. Whatever the reason, I am loving her latest collection which features beads, pearls or stones sliding freely across wires within geometric frames of waves, squares, rectangles, triangles, and rounds. One of my favorites is the Soft Wave necklace, a classic and feminine choker featuring freshwater pearls, sterling silver and a handmade hook clasp. I also love this contemporary and elegant Bubbles bracelet featuring a stunning combination of brushed 18K gold, polished sterling silver and colorful stones. See more of her collection at
