Dana Rogozinski, a millennial, was born in Jacksonville, Florida. She graduated from Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida and received her Masters in Business from Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida. Throughout Dana’s young adult life, she shared her passion for jewelry with her grandmother, Ella (Lucak) Rogozinski, a Holocaust Survivor of Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. Ella was self-taught in the art of stringing pearls and jewelry repair and worked at Underwood’s Jewelers for almost 50 years.
Dana studied fashion in Paris, Milan, and London, which ignited her desire to focus on the medium of precious gems and materials. She also worked in jewelry and fashion in New York starting in 2011. Dana has been influenced by both her maternal and paternal grandparents. Just recently, Dana spent an impactful year in Israel where The Jakob and Ella Legacy Collection was created. Dana launched her original line of Holocaust Jewelry in 2017.
As she moves forward with her collection, she will be giving back to support continuing Holocaust education and scholarships.
