About the artist
Daisy Metalworks is based in Austin, TX and handcrafted by me, Mijhal Daisy Poler. All designs are made by hand in my studio, and nothing is ever mass-produced. I take pride in making pieces that are original and raw, giving off a delicate yet industrial feel, going beyond simply an accessory and evolving into an aesthetic that combines the vibrancy of the natural earth and the sleekness of modern design.
I fell in love with metalsmithing after a trip to Israel in 2013, where one afternoon a jeweler taught me how to make a silver pendant. I had no idea those two hours would pave the path that I am on now. I became infatuated with metalwork and eagerly found a jeweler to apprentice with upon my return to the U.S. In 2015 I went to Mexico where I learned from a master in a small village -- that was when I became truly fascinated with the magic of working with metals. So, in 2017 I decided to launch Daisy Metalworks, put all of my other jobs on hold, and I have never looked back. I have an eager curiosity towards the world, as an avid traveler I am constantly inspired and fascinated by new places and cultures. I feel blessed that I get to wake up every morning and translate my curiosities into tangible pieces of wearable art.
