Dalia Jean was born in northeast Ohio and has lived here for most of her life. She moved to Charleston, South Carolina in her early twenties and eventually decided to move back to the city she loved: Cleveland.
Dalia graduated from Baldwin-Wallace College in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education and currently teaches at North Royalton High School. While completing her undergraduate degree, she studied under the instruction of world-renowned jeweler Dave Williamson, and fell in love with the art of jewelry making. Quickly, she knew she would pursue the medium as a personal passion and craft. Dalia Jean started building her jewelry line in the fall of 2017 in her home studio and was able to finally make her artistic dreams a reality.
Dalia Jean's handmade line of fine jewelry is fabricated one at a time, and while she works to create certain pieces for consistency, each piece is truly unique and one of a kind. Her love for nature, trees, and the beauty of wood grain has always existed, but struggled with the lack of durability of jewelry that included actual wood. She has created a process that includes hand drawn designs, etching, and fabricating that brings to life the look and feel of wood but is built for the daily jewelry wearer as USA-sourced copper, sterling silver, and gold-filled materials can withstand the elements and will last a lifetime.
Dalia Jean's line of rustic, yet clean looking and modern jewelry can accentuate any look and will become staple pieces in anyone's jewelry collection.
