Felt necklace by Danielle Gori-Montanelli: There are no lofty philosophical or theoretical concepts behind my work. I just throw myself into the rich warm textures and colors of the felt and watch the pieces evolve almost by themselves.
After years of working as a metalsmith, Danielle Gori-Montanelli felt as if her craving for color and texture was satisfied when she discovered felt. This vibrant medium enabled her to better explore her colorful, fanciful style in a larger scale. It also freed her from the confines of her workbench, allowing her to work with just a few simple tools, to follow where inspiration led, whether in her studio or in a flowery field in the countryside.
