THE ★DI★ IN VELANIDI
hello!! my name is Dina, and I am the human behind VELANIDI. i am 23 years old, and recently graduated from OCAD University with a bachelor degree in illustration. my goal when I created Velanidi was to share my love for all things cute, playful, and quirky. I never liked "normal" accessories, and think that it's much more fun expressing yourself without fear of judgement or having to fit in!
if you would like to check out my illustration work, you can find my portfolio here!
MEET YOUR NEW FAVE EARRING SHOP
"velanidi" (vel-uh-NEE-dee) comes from the greek word for acorn. my grandfather collected acorns and would create things with them or give them to my brother and i, and i want this shop to honour his creative spirit.
each product is handmade with so much love and positive energy, with the intention of making its new owner happy and confident! this store is an outlet for me to experiment with handmade crafts, along with turning my illustrations into something that is tangible. my hope is that all different types of people can enjoy these items and that it helps them express their inner child!
