About

Helping you create and give a thoughtful, unique gift that means a lot to you and is loved by your recipient.

My earliest memories of creating started by the front door to my single mother's apartment. Those days, I spent a lot of time watching PBS and I loved Bob Ross. I would water color paint, like the master I was at the age of like 8 😂, out there on that tiny patio. It was my 'zone' and that is why I am sure I still remember that feeling like it was yesterday.

Today, I love creating for you. It truly brings me great pleasure, daily, to hear your stories behind a piece of jewelry. Even better, is to hear the stories of how your recipient reacted once given your thoughtful gift. Your stories of travel and your vintage photos bring me happienss and make me smile everyday. Thank you.

I began creating jewelry in college around the year 2000. I put myself through school and graduated from UNF with a degree in Communications/Advertising and started my business, DLK Designs, around the time of the birth of my first daughter in 2005 (now I have two sweet girls). I am self taught in the design of resin jewelry and continue my education periodically by taking online courses. Coming from a single working mother home, I have a strong work ethic and I am dedicated to providing you, not only the perfect piece of jewelry, but also excellent customer service.

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.
