Danielle Stevens stumbled on a style secret while playing in her mom’s closet as a child: “Whether it’s a well-crafted piece of costume jewelry or one with diamonds and other fine gems, a girl needs a beautiful accessory.” Luckily for us, this didn’t mean a lifetime of collecting jewels from other designers, but creating a collection of her own. After months of making beaded jewelry to share with friends and family, Stevens decided to make her hobby official and launched her own line. Since 2002, DSJ , as she and her team call it, has grown at a slow and steady pace. Everyday fashionistas built up the buzz, and before long, celebs, like Drew Barrymore, have been snapped wearing her pieces. Stevens produces four collections each year and they range from bold, chunky, and colorful necklaces to cute cuffs and bracelets. Our favorite, though, is her line of legendary engraved necklaces. These pieces are simple, stylish and total classics. They average out at about $70 a piece and can be customized with your initials, name, favorite saying or symbol.
