Danielle Snyder and Jodie Snyder Morel

It’s a sisters kind of week; Danielle and I are taking a TNP trip to Paris and the power sister duo behind hit jewelry line DANNIJO – Danielle Snyder and Jodie Snyder Morel – are celebrating their five-year anniversary! It’s hard to put these two into words, as being around them (and their partner in crime, Eddie the Earring of course) makes you forget you’re actually supposed to be working. That’s just how fun they are. Their jewelry line is an addictive bevy of Bibb necklaces, costume earrings, “arm party” worthy bracelets (as they coin it)…the delicious list goes on. And speaking of deliciousness, we sat down with the two beauties at their favorite restaurant – Blue Ribbon Sushi – for some S and M…(sushi and metals).
