Daniel Pollak has been creating costume jewelry since the mid-1980's after graduating from Sheridan College. His use of antique European glass and Swarovski crystals are used in "wearable art pieces", which are influenced by Art Deco, Baroque, Victorian Ages, and Art Neveau. The pieces he creates are collectable, and enjoyed by hundreds of women. His signature brooches are the frog in a ballet dress, a dressed-up pug, and royal lions. Daniel rarely creates the same thing twice using the same colour and is always surprising us.
