In Her Closet: Dana Gordon & Jen Wainstein
Dana Gordon, a third-generation jewelry designer, founded Dana Rebecca Designs in 2007 on the simple but important idea your jewelry should make you feel as comfortable as your favorite t-shirt and as amazing as your little black dress. In 2013, Dana brought on her older sister, Jen, to run sales at DRD and bring the business to the next level. The dynamic combination of Dana’s creative designs with Jen’s sales prowess makes them an unstoppable duo.
