It’s all about the gold…earrings. And a golden retriever named Rocco (Lana Bramlette’s dog).

A decade of devotion, dedication and determination has paid off for Lana Jewelry, currently celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Famous for her striking upside down earrings (which she’s patented), jewelry designer Lana Bramlette has sold over 300,000 pairs of “large upside down hoop” earrings. Offered in yellow, white or rose gold with the option of diamonds, sapphires or emeralds…you can’t go wrong. Similar to “collecting” shoes, jeans or sunglasses, it’s easy to accumulate several pair of Lana’s magnificent hoops. The main attraction is that the earrings can be worn everyday. Ms. Bramlette shares, “The earrings are beautifully crafted, sexy and modern with an incredible sleek shine that I have perfected.”

Ms. Bramlette boasts a busy schedule, spending all of her time taking care of clients first. Lana Jewelry experiences a surge in sells during the holidays, but caters to the Millenial crowd of females ages 18-30 who make frequent impulse purchases throughout the year. No need to search far for Lana’s signature earrings in Chicago, they are available at Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, along with over 300 other stores and boutiques. But wait, there ‘s more, much more…Lana’s jewelry fans in Hollywood include Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Evan Langoria and Rhianna.

Ms. Bramlette designs jewelry best when she is happy. What makes Ms. Bramlette happy? Her husband, daughter, 8 hours of sleep every night (when possible), exercise, Kate Sommervile products and traveling to Miami and St. Tropez. Ms. Bramlette’s old Russian philosophy: “Live to work [and play hard] not work to live.”

How does Ms. Bramlette give back to the community? Ms. Bramlette is the founder of the Chicago Fashion Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, which provides academic scholarships to Chicago-area college students majoring in fashion related studies and coordinates educational programs for the Chicago fashion community.

Pay it forward!
