Dahlia Kanner

"I focus much of my attention on the circle. Rings and round elements inspire me with their continuity, simplicity and strength. I enjoy making pieces that people can connect with, wear, and enjoy daily."

Dahlia Kanner handcrafts her jewelry using techniques such as lost wax casting, forming, carving, and fabrication. She creates her rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces from 18K gold, platinum, sterling silver, and occasionally, freshwater pearls.

Kanner has a large collection of plant and tree segments, minerals, insects, and photographs of natural life forms. Her designs are inspired by this collection and the hints of forms, textures, and moods that are within each piece. Kanner has a special affinity for the tactile and makes each of her jewelry pieces touchable as well as beautiful to view and wear.
