When you learn that hiking, reading and drinking tea surrounded by nature is Daniela Villega’s idea of absolute pleasure, then it becomes very easy to understand the essence of her jewelry designs. She combines luxury materials along with treasures of nature so smoothly that her jewelry pieces are sold at the most exclusive stores in the world (Bergdorf Goodman, Net-a-porter, Just one Eye, Moda operandi, and Harvey Nichols, among others).

Daniela is a born and raised Mexican now based in Los Angeles. She founded her jewelry company in 2008, and has taken the brand to the next level in her eight short years in the business. She has had the opportunity of collaborating in different projects with amazing brands and people, such as Salvatore Ferragamo and David Rothschild from the LOST EXPLORER.

Her success is a result of her passion. She sees her work as a form of art in which she expresses her dreams, feelings, and ideas. The key behind every piece is telling a unique story, this is how she defines her creative process. There is so much to learn from such a process because she claims to find inspiration in everyday conversations as well as trips, books and walks through nature. Inspiration comes from everyday happenings, not by a strike of lightning. We should observe our world and let it speak to us. This is a true gift.

Attention, Mexico! When talking about art fairs, nothing compares to Zona MACO. She loves the imagination and curiosity of the Mexican culture.
