Dannick Carpentry LLC, founded and operated by Dan Musolino, is a carpentry and general contracting business that "handles any project, large and small." Their professional services include excavation, foundations and concrete work, plumbing, HVAC, and electrical.
Musolino explains the company is involved in high-end renovations, stating the team works closely with Trillium Architects in town for energy-efficient and green buildings. Materials are sourced locally from the Ridgefield Supply Company, Rings End Lumber, and other local suppliers.
"When a potential customer comes to us, the first thing that happens is a site meeting to determine the scope of work," Musolino states. "From that point, I usually recommend one of the local architects in our area to develop a plan and determine the cost of the potential project."
A project Musolino most recently worked on involved a High Performance / Net-Zero home, a tightly-built home designed to function more efficiently, have lower energy loads, and operate healthier for the people residing in them. "I have gained a world of knowledge about the building and function of this type of construction," he said, noting doing that type of work is one of his favorites.
Giada Blu Jewelry
Giada Blu Fine Jewelry designs one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces. Everything is handmade in America using semi-precious and precious Gemstones, Antiquities, and 18k gold. “Our signature look is our bold and colorful statement necklaces, each uniquely carved from thousands of carats of premium Gemstones,” the brand’s founder and designer, Danielle Todoro, explains.
Todoro launched the brand in 2020, naming it after her daughter — her true inspiration to start the brand. “I worked diligently through Covid and spent the lockdown photographing product, creating new collections, and building my website,” Todoro says.
Spending years in corporate fashion as a Gemstone Buyer and Senior Manager of DY Signature for David Yurman, she realized two things: she wanted to be more present for her daughter, and she wanted to start a business that would allow her to do what she loves with the people she loves. “The power a piece of jewelry has when you put it on can be transformative,” Todoro states. “It can bring a source of empowerment and spirituality to its wearer.”
Her goal with the jewelry label is to make impactful pieces that embody her appreciation of natural gems and minerals, transforming them into wearable jewelry. Also, to connect with a special clientele who shares the designer’s passion and love of Gemstones.
"The thought of one day being able to work alongside my daughter and grow something magical together is what keeps me going," she says.
