Pageo Featured Designer
Dana Bronfman is a New York City-based modern fine jewelry designer, best known for her “quietly bold” aesthetic using her signature “oculus” design. This circular open space allows natural light to shine though, illuminating the uniqueness of those that wear her work. It symbolically opens space for the owner to connect with the pieces’ symbolism and the story of the jewel’s journey from mine to finger.
The artist’s love for jewelry began with a childhood fascination with her grandmother’s Native American jewelry collection. She studied jewelry craftsmanship at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts, where she came to revere the craft of metalsmithing. Putting together her passions for activism and adornment, she founded her eponymous collection in 2014 with a mission to create wearable art that tells a story about the connections between the Earth and the people that walk it.
