Vendor Spotlight: Dana Young Jewelry

Dana Young Jewelry is designed and handmade by Dana Young, who started her own company right here in Frederick, MD after ten years in the jewelry industry.  Dana’s company goal is to give your life value by “creating jewelry that makes you look and feel fabulous doing it.”  As a bonus, Dana stays true to her own values through Dana Young Jewelry—each item is made with as much recycled metal as possible and 10% of all profits are donated to animal welfare organizations.  The pieces are quirky, unique, and beautiful, encouraging each of us to “save the world and look cute doing it.”  Needless to say, we were so excited to collaborate with Dana on a special piece just for us!

After chatting with her, we came up with the idea to create a whisk necklace for our cooking and baking inclined customers to have a little something special.  Just like she does for all of her jewelry, Dana sketched out the design in her studio.  Here’s Dana getting ready to make our lovely designs (safety first!):

Then, each whisk pendant was handmade out of sterling silver and carefully measured for consistency before it was ready to go.

We only had Dana Young Jewelry create 35 whisk necklaces for us, so supplies are limited.  Each one is unique and perfect as a gift or a special item for yourself to feel lovely and sparkling when you’re whipping up something delicious in the kitchen. Each sterling silver whisk pendant hangs on an adjustable chain that measures 16-18″.  They are available in-store and online for purchase.
