Welcome and thank you for visiting Alana Lilie Designs! My name is Alana Lilie and I have lived in Austin, Texas most of my life. I am married and have two beautiful daughters named Anna & Ginger.
After the birth of my daughter Anna, I had to return to teaching. I wanted to carry a piece of Anna with me, so I made a photo charm so that I could wear her picture around my neck. Every time I wore the charm, I would get so many compliments and lots of "where did you get this?" reactions. When I told the person I had made it, they would request that I make one for them too! With that...Voila!... Alana Lilie Designs was born!
I have now ventured into making my own designs in .999 silver.
I remember being very young and thinking, "I could make that!" when I would see a cool friendship bracelet I liked, or a beaded necklace/bracelet, photo charms, and now more recently .999 pure silver precious metal clay designs. Through lots of research, and lots of failed attempts before I actually have a product I am happy to share with my customers. I am proud to say I hand craft every piece of jewelry myself and take great pride in being a self taught jewelry designer.
I almost always have some creative project going on, whether it be sewing, knitting, photography, you name it, I have probably done it! Making jewelry just happens to be so much fun! The wonderful part is that there are always new necklace and bracelet designs to create and the possibilities are limited by my imagination alone!
My goal with Alana Lilie Designs is to do something I enjoy and then pass it along to others to enjoy. My favorite description of what I do is "I create jewelry designed to preserve the special moments in life that will linger in our hearts forever..."
I also enjoy shopping and want to offer other unique gifts here at Alana Lilie Designs to make it a "one stop shop" for all of your gift needs. I strive to provide quality products at fair, reasonable prices and I welcome questions, comments and suggestions. Just email me.
