DANA KELLIN ~ Dana
Kellin is known for her feminine, sexy designs and the unparalleled quality and workmanship. Dana Kellin's ingenious and artful
approach to this age-old craft brought wire-wrapping to the forefront of the Designer Jewelry market. The jewelry is handmade
by trained artisans in the partners' studio. Each piece is constructed by wrapping fine-gauge sterling silver, gold fill and
14K gold wire with precious, semi-precious and pearl stones into various sculptural formations. It is a time-consuming and
labor-intensive process reminiscent of Victorian, Edwardian and turn-of-the-century craftsmanship. And although the delicate
intricacy lends an antique air, the overall look is distinctively fresh and modern. Since the premiere collection, Dana Kellin
jewelry has been consistently featured on both the big and small screens as well as magazines such as In Style, Vogue, W,
Harpers Bazaar, Elle, Mademoiselle, Lucky, Self, People, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan. Dana Kellin jewelry has been worn by
a "who's who" of stylish actresses including Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Michelle Pfeiffer, Andie
MacDowell, Sandra Bullock, Cameron Diaz, Helen Hunt, Lisa Kudrow, Heidi Klum, Christy Turlington, Penelope Cruz, Courtney
Cox, Meg Ryan, Jennifer Garner, Lara Flynn Boyle, and Hilary Duff.
