About Dale Hernsdorf
In her own words…
“My aesthetic is both modern and timeless. Inspired by Etruscan jewelry and Greek artifacts as well as the clean, spare lines of contemporary architecture, I create one of a kind pieces that are substantial and balanced. The sensuality of gold - the way it feels in the hand and on the skin - has been a major consideration in my design aesthetic, so there's an abundance of it in my jewels.
Each piece is fully hand-wrought in the studio using custom-alloyed high karat gold and ethically sourced fine gemstones. These methods are labor and time intensive, but the touch that hand-fabricating gives every aspect of a piece - each link of chain, bezel, and twist of wire - is the hallmark of my work. This attention to detail results in heirloom quality pieces of jewelry.
From feeling the initial spark of an idea, to being seduced by a particular stone, to coaxing form and wrestling metal, to the final polish, every aspect of my process has one goal - to create a unique piece of jewelry that will be both treasured and worn with delight.”
