These days I’m working on a new collection for Daily Art. The main inspiration for the new designs was a coat I saw a couple of weeks ago.
I was looking around in a Christmas bazaar and my eye was caught by an amazing, vintage, kimono-like coat. It was made of turquoise velvet and it had gold thread embroidery all over. It was a little bit too expensive for my budget, but it stuck with me as an image, and I thought that I’m already doing embroidery, so I could just add embroidery details to pieces I already own.
Plus, when I opened my sketchbook to start designing fresh things for the brand, it came really naturally to me to create a more vintage and bohemian inspired collection.
I usually design each piece on paper, with pencil, always keeping it in black and white.
It’s the next step when I look at materials and colors, matching them and making the final combination.
Combining colors it’s very interesting, almost magical, for me. I usually use my instinct to find the “right” combination. It’s like mixing colors on a canvas. Bringing close different shades, there comes a moment when I think “that’s it!”.
My name is Angelina and I am the designer/maker/photographer behind “Daily Art by Angelina”. The brand might have started only four years ago, but its story goes way back…!
I’ve liked jewelry since I can remember myself. Even when I was little, my mom had bought me many pairs of fancy clip earrings to play with. And growing up I remember sitting on the floor of my room making bracelets with beads.
Years passed, I went deeper and deeper into arts and crafting, so in June of 2012, I decided to open my Etsy Shop… and until this day I love making unique pieces, using a variety of techniques and materials!
Thank you for stopping by, and have a great time going through my world!
