crafts her jewelry in a glassed-in studio surrounded by the woods of Rhode Island. Since finding her beginning as a jeweler fifteen years ago, Dahlia says her work has become more conservative, comfortable, and wearable, though she still approaches each piece as a small, sculptural piece of art.
Dahlia's love of nature is apparent in her jewelry, replicating the textures and forms of found natural objects. Perhaps her affinity for the natural world can be traced back to her earliest childhood ambition of owning an animal sanctuary.
Dahlia has two dogs, a Siberian husky named Kato, and a rottweiler/German shepherd named Zeke. Her favorite place in the world is the top of the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska, her sweetest indulgence is "always dark chocolate," and if Dahlia could be any animal (besides human) she would be a flying fox.
