We are all individuals, and choose our colors and styles with that idea in mind. Dana Blair designs creates all of it’s jewelry with the ideas of individuality, lightness and distinction as its main focus. Each piece is created for functionality, with each individual wearer in mind. Like the human spirit, stones are permeable. Each stone brings out those spaces in the spirit that have been drained and help enhance what is naturally within.
Dana Blair, started designing jewelry in July of 2002. She always enjoyed creating gifts for family and friends with each person's personality and aura in mind. Later that summer after designing a necklace for her mother interest in her jewelry rapidly began to grow. Dana Blair designs was officially created that fall. Every piece is handmade and completely original. In July 2006 www.danablairdesigns.com was launched and 3 to 4 collections per year are available online. Stayed tuned for the new website which will be launched February 2011!
Dana Blair designs was started as a custom business. Dana knows that one size does not fit all. Bracelets and rings come in many different sizes. And most necklaces come on various length chains and the stones can be individualized as well.

The collection can also be found at various boutiques throughout the US as well as through private sales and parties.
Giving back has always been very important to Dana Blair. As a child she stated donating part of her allowance to St. Jude research hospital and continued that spirit to help while assisting as a volunteer on bringing the NY chapter of Habitat for Humanity to the NYC area.
This year 10% of all web based sales will be donated to a different non-profit organization each month.

One most important organization to her is the Brooke Jackman Foundation, Inc. Brooke, 23, perished in the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001. Her goal was to go to graduate school for social work and help underprivileged children through education. Her family wanted to see her spirit and compassion for those in need live on, and her vision fulfilled.
