About the Artist
As a child, Daphne Olive was tirelessly surrounded by a creative atmosphere that her mother and grandmother fostered; her mother was inspired by the bohemian character of the 1970's and her grandmother influenced the artist's creative abilities with fiber arts. However, it wasn't until Daphne spent a year apprenticing under a metalsmith in Israel that she truly found her calling in jewelry design and creation. Daphne's jewelry is made from laser-cut stainless steel, some plated with rose or yellow gold. The artist's designs beautifully combine contemporary industrial processes with the organic quality of a handmade approach. Daphne's work is a representation of family, whimsy, and superb design that seamlessly marries a bold, contemporary aesthetic with nostalgia and romance.
