Daneen Augello's love of art and color began with her first box of Crayola Crayons. Her vision continued to grow with her first camera at age 6. Photography became her childhood passion, which followed her to college. In the winter of 2000, while pursuing her undergraduate Fine Art Art Photography degree, Daneen's life changed when she discovered glass blowing.
Acting on a friend's referral, she applied for a job at a glass studio and seized the opportunity to learn a new art form. She began an apprenticeship which lasted over two years. Daneen learned both the classic and contemporary techniques of lampworking. She became fascinated with Borosilicate glass's ability to magnify and distort shape and color, absorb and reflect light, and create seemingly vast depth and dimension within a very small space.
Daneen realized these properties make glass an amazing medium for creating jewelry and began building a studio in New Jersey.
Daneen recognizes an inner glow in all women. Glass also emits an extraordinary glow when put in the flame. This radiance and warmth lives within each piece of glass. Characterized by lush color combinations and whimsical design, her glass creates alluring and captivating jewelry for women of all ages.
