Dina’s jewelry captures the essence and gesture of nature. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Dina spent many years studying in Rome. She is passionate about travel and escapes to summer programs to further her artistic enlightenment and curious spirit. Dina draws from her surroundings, both the Connecticut River and the New England woods are a treasure and source of endless inspiration.
“I am inspired by nature. I study and explore through drawing in charcoal. My goal is to capture this essence and gesture in metal. I want to show the mark of my hand in each piece and achieve a rhythm of grace and movement. My parents are dancers, at an early age I learned the grace of rhythm and movement which has become a formative influence in my work. I want my jewelry to inspire and welcome play with the wearer.” ~Dina Varano
