   Painter John Nieto launched him in a new direction when he asked him to create an inlay version of one of his portraits. Danny now is exploring the idea of portraiture in jewelry, using for inspiration his artwork and the work of others. "I like E.S. Curtis photographs," he says, referring to the famous turn-of-the-century photographer and ethnographer who documented more than 80 Native American tribes. "I go through magazines. I've done drawings and I paint".
