Dinerman’s work has roots in nature: Many of her pieces are inspired by the natural world, refashioned in silver or brass and accented by stones and beads.

She told Michelle Mills of the Star-News: “Sometimes I see something and I think, ‘What a fabulous shape!’ and I can see how it would be an interesting shape translated into another material. Then I take the actual seed and make a mold of it.”
Dinerman is also a featured jewelry designer for the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden, where her organic-inspired designs feel, well, natural.
