Hi! I'm Daria and I'm a Geordie Italian mam based in the North East of England.
I make bright, bold, colourful jewellery from acrylic and wood with the aim of creating pieces which are comfortable to wear and that bring joy. Each piece is designed, handmade and packed by me in the garden studio I share with my husband.
I run Studio Dariolina around our 2 wonderfully wild boys and my 2 elderly grandparents - everyday is busy but there's always smiles and laughter too. I quit my teaching career of 15 years just before the first lockdown to fully throw myself into this dream and to try to prioritise what is important to me - family, health and creativity. It's challenging at times but I'll get there!
I'm hoping to launch some homeware pieces very soon and another jewellery collection in the autumn - keep 'em peeled!
