Meet your teacher, Danielle!

Hi! I am Danielle Miller-Gilliam, the owner, designer and maker behind Danielle Miller Jewelry and I LOVE what I do!

I became mesmerized by metal while making a sculpture in a high school art program and I have been a full-time professional jewelry artist for over 30 years.

I have been instructing students (and employees) in metalsmithing and jewelry making in various degrees since 1991.

I find teaching others very fulfilling and I am passionate about continuously learning new techniques as well as sharing my knowledge with others.
