Dana is a creative innovator with a playful spark, always adding a touch of a romantic and elegant sense of style. Her philosophy is that jewelry should not only capture your attention but also your imagination. From the breathtaking sophistication of the Infinity Heart Collection to the whimsical fancy of the Penny Pendants line, her jewelry encourages women to indulge their glamorous and beautiful characteristics.
Dana’s inspiration often stems from real-life experiences. For years she indulged her playful side, designing toys, games and novelties. Suddenly she found herself overwhelmed by the love she felt for her husband Michael and turned to jewelry design, creating the Infinity Heart Medallion Collection as a tribute to him. The intricate design of multiple hearts represents the infinite blossoming of affection.
The Penny Pendants Line came from her favorite childhood saying: “See a penny, pick it up, and all day long you’ll have good luck!” These whimsical keepsake pendants — each adorned with a lucky penny — have become coveted must-haves. In addition, the Petals Collection offers the wearer a unique opportunity to co-create a custom art piece and incorporate a personal message.
Dana designed the Cross Stars as a way to celebrate her and her husband’s faiths. It seemed only natural to Dana that their religious symbols be connected in this way. Not only for married couples but for anyone wanting to display their respect and understanding for another’s faith.
Dana’s jewelry designs have been sold in specialty retailers such as The Wedding Library and Kate’s Paperie; other creations have appeared in major chains such as Toys “R” Us, Fao Schwarz and Children’s Place. Dana Michele products have also been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, Good Housekeeping, Family Life, on What Not To Wear, Fox News and Z100 Radio Station, among other media outlets.
I hope you enjoy and embrace the spirit of my designs as much as I love creating them.
