I'm so glad you are here! I'm Danielle Kaminski, jewelry designer and candle maker. I'm also wife to Jason & a mama to sweet James Paul in heaven. I'm totally obsessed with beverages. I love black coffee, sweet tea & red wine. I'm happiest when I'm snuggled up next to my husband on the couch with some resse's cups and the latest episode of Scorpion on TV.
God blessed me with great parents & four incredible sisters to do life with. I live in Duncan, SC with my husband & my cat, Liam. Liam came to me because I use to have a hard time with the word 'no' but after seven years he and I have become great friends and I wouldn't trade him for a thing. I have the greatest husband any woman could ask for. He challenges me & spoils me at the same time. While I've lived in the same county my whole life, the rest of my immediate family is scattered around the state so I spend a lot of time on I-26.
Our experience with Infant Loss and the brief time I had with my son James Paul is shaping my life more each day. I am making most decisions about my life and business through the lens of our future family and how I can best serve them.
I love to read but in the past few years I've gotten hooked on audiobooks, especially crime novels and historical fiction. I also enjoy listening to podcasts; my favorites are Serial (Season One), S-Town, Criminal, The Goal Digger Podcast, Being Boss & my most recent obsession The Business Life & Joy Podcast with Shunta Grant.
In addition to creating for both Wired Essentials & The Crafty Wino, I am the Vendor Liaison at Vintage Warehouse of Spartanburg. I organize markets & events for the creative community in the Upstate and foster our community of resident vendors. My jewelry and candles are both displayed inside the store and you can find me there working the front desk every Tuesday from 10 - 4!
