During the summer of her sixteenth birthday, Dana traveled to India with her father and returned home with her first collection that sold out in 48 hours. Each summer she continued designing and selling her pieces and the hobby turned into a business. After graduating from the University of Texas in Austin, she attended the Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, California, and studied in their Applied Jewelry Arts Program. Upon completing school, she founded Dana Rebecca Designs in 2001 on the simple, but important idea that your jewelry should make you feel as comfortable as your favorite t-shirt and as amazing as your little black dress.
As a third generation jeweler, Dana's travels and the special connection to the women in her life inspire each piece. Dana hopes that the pieces will inspire women and help celebrate all of their major milestones, celebrations, and everyday moments.
