On Etsy since 2007

Give a thoughtful, unique and handmade gift that is forever loved by your recipient.

Dana is a full-time metalsmith, wife, and mother of two daughters in Jacksonville, Florida. She began creating jewelry in the year 2000 while in college majoring in Communications/Advertising (with a minor in Social Welfare). Since those years, she has transitioned from beadwork to resin jewelry featuring vintage maps to now metalsmithing. She enjoys the process of creating jewelry from beginning to end featuring personalized messages or setting gemstones with meaning. She has been featured in Bead Trends Magazine, Southern Lady Magazine, Jacksonville Magazine’s Bride, Parents.com and Etsy's very own Quit Your Day Job series.

Dana is deeply inspired by nature, especially the ocean. Turquoise is one of her favorite stones because of the varying blues. Each piece is created one at a time by hand with its own unique story and one-of-a-kind attention to detail. Slow-made jewelry for your journey designed and created by a one-woman-owned business.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Most items in our shop are hand crafted using sterling silver. All products may be created using your choice of any city in the world. Please note your desired locations in the 'note to seller' box upon checkout.

When will my order ship?

Most personalized/custom items take up to 5 days to create and ship. Each is created by hand, by me. Please contact me if you would like an item by a particular date. Most times a rush order is possible. You will be notified via email once your order has been shipped. To see if your order has shipped and view tracking information, log into your ETSY account then look under Purchases.

Do you use real maps?

Yes! What makes DLK Designs items so charming and meaningful, is the fact that we actually cut from old, vintage maps. Most are from the 1950's or earlier. What I most adore about my business, is that you are receiving an actual piece of historical memorabilia. Please note that in a few instances, maps have been reproduced, such as with the 1800's Antique or Sports Collections. Please keep in mind, as these are cut from old books, I am unable to zoom in on locations. I cut your desired location from the map exactly as shown. A proof of any desired location is available upon request at no additional cost to you.

Do items come gift wrapped?

Each item comes gift ready in a box with a bow. A gift wrapping upgrade is available at checkout. Also, available a checkout, you may request that a gift note be included in your order for you recipient. Orders are not shipped with receipts. Your receipt will be emailed to you.

Photo Jewelry

All photos may be emailed to danaklop@hotmail.com or uploaded via an Etsy convo. A high resolution photo is preferred, but I have many clients who snap a photo with their mobile phone of an old vintage photo and they work great too! It's truly all about the memory you want to convey and how much meaning that will have for your gift recipient.
