Dana Schneider's Profile
I have a BFA in Sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design. I worked at Tiffany & Co. in NYC after collage in their repair department.

I continued to sell my jewelry through Barney's New York, Takashimaya, Twist in Portand, OR. and Cher's catalog Sanctuary. My jewelry has been in Vogue, ELLE, Harpers Baazar and many others.
