Dayana Ferrera is an artisan living and working in Bloomington, Indiana. She uses fine metals and stones, creating simultaneously elegant and bold designs sure to be seen as works of art for the body.
Artist's Statement: "I’m intrigued by the idea that jewelry provides an opportunity for expression in a way that is unspoken but also very versatile, as is our identity. It gives us a chance to show a side of ourselves that we may not otherwise share overtly. For me creating is as much a therapy as it is freedom to express myself without using words. I embrace this process using only natural materials in my jewelry pieces – gemstones, metals like silver and brass, leather and ceramic pieces. This allows me to feel more connected to nature and to the beauty of the materials and their history. "
