Some people know what they want to do at a very early ages. Dana Levy, designer for Dana Rebecca Designs seems to be one of those lucky souls. Levy, a third generation jewelry designer, grew up in her father's jewelry factor and launched her first line while still in high school. After graduating from college she then went to the Gemological Institute in Carlsbad, California to learn the core basics of jewelry design. She launched Dana Rebecca Designs in May 2006.
Her pieces are inspired by her love of travel and adventures in places including India, China, Hong Kong, Tanzania, Kenya, and Brazil. The colors and textures from each culture show up in stone choices like sleeping beauty turquoise, angel skin coral, blue topaz, and chrysoprase. Many designs feature carved gemstones.
Each piece of the collection is named after a family member or loved one. The jewelry has appeared in O, The Oprah Magazine, Inside Weddings, Elle Accessories, CS Chicago Social and Michigan Avenue Magazine and been worn by celebrities including Debra Messing, Lauren Conrad, Lo Bosworth, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Katy Perry. The collection can be found in specialty boutiques throughout the country and prices range from $750-$6000.
