About Dana Blair designs
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.
Who We Are
Dana Blair, just opened her first retail boutique in NYC. It is located at 112 West 17th Street and is open 7 days a week. Monday thru Thursday 11am-7pm, Friday and Saturday 11am-8pm and Sunday Noon-6p.
Dana 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.
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. Go to the custom order page on this site for more details.
Who We Work With
Dana Blair Designs works with other small businesses. The collections can also be found in boutiques throughout the US as well as through private sales and parties.
For many years, DBD could be found in department stores Henri Bendel in NYC as well as Bloomingdale’s flagship store in NYC.
We also currently work with non for profits, donating jewelry and store experiences to help raise money for each cause or specific initiative.
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.
Dana Blair Designs donates jewelry to various non-profit organizations for fundraising events. 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. This foundation brings tools for literacy through programs and events including “Brooke’s Book”, a program incorporated into the summer camp Goddard Riverside Community Center in NYC. Also the foundation sponsors scholarships at high school, donates books to school libraries, and donates toys for children to social service agencies.

Other organizations include: The Celiac Foundation, the American Cancer Society, Habitat for Humanity, The Food Bank For New York, Island Harvest amongst others. If you have an organization close to your heart we would like to hear about it. Please contact us through the form.
The night before the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center, Brooke told her mother that there was more to life than making money. She had planned to get her M.S.W. at Berkeley’s School of Social Work so that she could help disadvantaged children. At only 23, with so much hope and promise, Brooke had her whole life in front of her wiped away in one of the most horrific tragedies of our time; in an instant, our beautiful Brooke was taken from us. Now Brooke’s family and friends do this for her and for all of the underserved and forgotten children who never got the chance to have Brooke herself come into their lives.
