Vixen Chat: Jewelry Designer Dana Faith
Accessories and jewelry have always been a Vixen's best friends. Whether it be a ring, earring, necklace or bracelet, a dash of glamour adds sophistication and spunk to any look. Dana Faith, a downtown New York City designer, offers an eclectic line of handmade one-of-a kind jewelry right at your fingertips.
With prices starting at $100, the collection incorporates handmade twisted wire jewelry, using precious metals mixed with semi-precious stones. From working with the legendary designer Vera Wang to having celebrities like JoJo and Kelly Ripa wearing her designs, the brand is sure to become a household name. The accomplishment of having designs featured in the top magazines such as InStyle, People, Glamour and Lucky is beyond impressive and only showcases that Dana is here to take the design industry with her jewels.
VIBE Vixen had a little chat with Dana Faith, and she dished on the light, delicate and feminine collection she has created.
VIBE VIXEN: What kind of woman does Dana Faith represent?
DANA FAITH: Every woman! My jewelry is a timeless, iconic luxury brand that fits every woman's style. Our line is extremely wearable and has current, yet lasting attributes. Women wear my jewelry to complete their look with a sense of youthfulness and ease.
Why did you choose to do twisted wire jewelry as opposed to any other formation?
I have always loved the feel of antique jewelry and was really inspired by a piece my grandfather had made for my grandmother for their anniversary! I feel it represents a sense of timelessness.
I would definitely collaborate with Vera Wang! I worked with Vera for many years and learned my craft from her. I considered her my mentor and I will always look up to Vera in that way!
I am currently working on my new collection for Fall! Lots of recent developments in my life have inspired new designs which I'm very excited for! I will soon be launching a men's collection as a tribute to my late grandfather, whose legacy I wish to carry on throughout my career. My other projects? Well, for now, I will be keeping those a secret 😉
