Danai Giannelli lives in Athens Greece, where she also grew up & she had a flair for art and aesthetics since the early days of her life, influenced by her father’s love for art and his talent in calligraphy. She is an almost self-taught jewelry designer and her work has been picked by Vogue Greece, British Vogue magazine and Vogue Talents in Vogue Italia.
The two materials she mostly uses are gold and silver, alone or combined with precious & semi-precious stones and colored cords, on jewelry made with the Lost Wax technique. The essence of her work can be expressed in three words: natural light & colors. Her creations express a passion for diachronic simplicity and relaxed luxury, while her inspiration comes from symbols, images & shapes of nature, past eras and also unique heirlooms of her family and their story
Danai presented her work at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, in Nov. 2017, together with 26 other Greek Jewelry designers and she has participated with her exclusive creations, at the exhibition “Ex-votos – Talismans – Spells” at Eleni Marneri Galerie, in Athens in 2014-2015, where her work is still showcased.
