Every designer needs inspiration because it is only the inspiration that really gives the needed push. And it is only then the ideas that linger in the inner realms take a final form. While some take inspiration from other designer collections on the other hand some have their own way of taking inspiration from the surrounding no matter wherever they are. So it is now clear that inspiration can be from anything. However what needs to be remembered is the fact that majority of designers take their inspiration from nature which is naturally the first and best teacher. It sounds surprising that there are designers whose only inspiration from nature. They are enough of them who find inspiration in elements of nature namely wind, sunshine, water and earth for instance. They study the underlying pattern and reflect the same thing in their designs. Even the colors motivate to a great extent for instance there are some designers who closely follow the nature and reflect the color and texture in their works. So it is needless to say that for scores of designers the main source of idea is nature apart from many things. Daniela Zagnolli is inspired by the beauty of nature, its living creatures, and their unique shapes. I chatted with the Brazilian jewelry designer who launched her line earlier this year via email.

ESW: Do you think being a Brazilian designer makes your jewelry stand out?

People associate Brazilian women's fashion jewelry with quality and precious stones, leather, and other organic materials. The rich mixture of Brazilian culture, the beautiful Brazilian landscape, and the happiness of the Brazilian people come to life in Brazilian jewelry, which helps set it apart from other jewelry in the marketplace. Again its not that the contemporary style is ignored it is equally given the importance. However as already mentioned the emphasis is more on blending culture and reflecting the new age aspirations. A style traces its origin in its culture and culture traces is origin the people, values, beliefs, nature and many things besides. So itís quite evident that culture plays an important role in influencing style and many things besides.

ESW: How do fashion styles differ in Brazil?

Currently there are more similarities than there are differences between American and Brazilian fashion trends. There are differences but also there is deep respect for cross cultures and this is what is really inspiring new things. They are both experimenting with a mixture of innovative styles using new exotic materials, and at the same time there is a retro movement with a nostalgia for styles from the past. When we juxtapose to trends one the old and one the contemporary one will understand that the trends are nothing but an amalgamation of old style taking a new form and this is what is quite interesting. Every style deeply reflects some part of culture aspects and this is quite evident from Brazilian jewelry.

ESW: What materials do you use?

It needs to be understood that the usage of the materials greatly depends on the kind of design one is looking for. Although every time there is a design we use a variety of organic materials and semi precious stones. However our current line is mostly made up of natural cowhide adorned with Swarovski crystals and gold plated brass.
