Daunis designs are “Made in Maine, Worn Around the World”. Created in our Portland we use the fine metals of gold, platinum, palladium and sterling alone or in combination with fine gems and diamonds. Our designs bridge the expanse between fine art sculpture and well thought out designer jewelry. (You might also find a piece made of vinyl record shards set like jewels, a white gold neckpiece with inserts of Dove chocolate wrappers for the proper red color, beach rocks set with colored diamonds and linked together with 18k gold, or even wrought iron links set with black diamonds and 18k gold) Our designs embrace the curves and waves of the ocean and the way light dances over moving water creating a flow. Our pieces have the passion found in fine works of art and yet are finely engineered for wear-ability. The patterned, woven pieces have the human touch of the thumbprint of the artist. All are elegantly, designed with the intent to complement the person wearing the jewelry. Rhode Island School of Design graduates, we have been honored with these selected national awards: MJSA’s American Vision Awards, 1st & 2nd place for Custom Design of Distinction; DeBeer’s “Diamonds Today” Award; Jewelers of America, “Jewel Award”; Grand Prize and First Prize, Intergold/World Gold Council; First Prize, Gold & First Prize, Silver, Accent Magazine; Excellence in Jewelry Award, American Craft Expo. Daunis works have been included in exhibitions at: twice at Museum of American Crafts, NYC, University of Arizona Museum, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Fuller Museum of Art, Brockton, MA and included innumerous publications. You are invited to visit our showroom and studio in Portland.
