Dania De Bortoli Designs

Vintage Fusion, a revival of elegance from bygone eras.

About

the artist

I have been designing jewelry and costumes since I was little. I fondly remember my Halloween costume from the 6th grade. I was a blonde Greek goddess draped in a pink satin toga. Not exactly traditional. My toga was accessorized with a huge iridescent blue and fuchsia glass brooch. It was designed by Schiaparelli, a famous Mid-Century fashion designer. That brooch was amazing! It was my grandmother's and she had quite the collection of designer costume jewelry. I think she had a big influence on my taste in fashion, especially the jewelry!  

the jewelry

For me, creating is exploring, being adventurous and curious. That attitude has led me to a lot of experimentation. I have designed Tudor and Elizabethan costumes, quilts, knitted garments and accessories, and  created recycled cashmere coats. I was featured on a program called “That’s Clever” on HGTV where I demonstrated how to knit, felt, and embellish a purse with jewels. However, I always end up returning to creating jewelry and my favorite material to work with is metal. I also happen to be a collector of antique and vintage jewelry and you will see almost all of my work is influenced by designs from multiple eras ranging from Victorian to Mid-Century modern. Once again I have my grandmother's influence to thank for this passion.
