About Us

Danaca Design is a small-scale metal-working and jewelry fabrication studio. Founded in 2003, we sell artisan jewelry, tools for jewelers, and offer a full schedule of classes in the art of decorative metal work and jewelry design. Our goal is to give every student the opportunity to be productive and creative at their comfort level, to hone skills and gain new abilities, to stretch, grow and experience achievement.


The Danaca Design Gallery features a vibrant selection of handcrafted artisan jewelry by seasoned professionals and emerging artists. Bridging contemporary and traditional styles, each collection is unique to the artistic vision of the makers. 3-4 times per year, special exhibitions bring work from across the globe so that there is always something new and exciting to discover. Gallery shopping is available online and in person in our Seattle showroom.

For the convenience of our students and the local jewelry-making community we sell a select assortment of tools and supplies. The selection includes handmade tools, fabrication hand-tools, cabochons and basic soldering and metals supplies.

Treat your team, friends or children to a custom experience in a fun and creative environment. Jewelry making provides an opportunity to use your hands, exercise your brain and support each other in the challenges presented by fine craftsmanship. Projects are skillfully designed to meet your needs.
