Soon she began getting requests to breather new life into other people's heirlooms. In 2008, Dora Mae Jewelry was born. Before long she was sourcing her own pieces from vintage markets around the country and creating her own collections of long boho necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
Boho Glam Jewels with Sentimental Meaning and Modern Magic.
Dreaming in Vintage?
Wake up to Dora Mae!
While the sun sets on all styles, it always rises again. Dora Mae is part of the rising: The new life. Dora Mae breathes "fashion forward" into fashion's past and sends it sparkling around the necks of the next generation of women who love long boho statement necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
No heirlooms? No Problem!
We create our own hand crafted masterpieces that are equal parts boho and glam. Our collections of long boho necklaces, bracelets and earrings combine both antique and contemporary materials. We also create delicate layering pieces known as our Mini Mae collection, so you can be statement-making or subtle.
Ansley invites you to be part of the restoration process by collaborating with her and her design team, so you can transform your family heirloom into something truly fashion forward. Take inspiration from her long boho necklaces, earrings and bracelets or create something completely unique to you. There's nothing quite like the joy of reviving an accessory full of meaning and memories since magic happens when you add a hint of high fashion to your heritage.
The Boho Bride
Welcome to the Beautiful Mess!
All of our long boho necklaces, earrings and bracelet collections are available in our gallery located in the heart of Orlando's historic Ivanhoe Village. But the shop, nestled among indie bars, restaurants and museums, is so much more than the typical retail store since every piece is designed and created in our working studio just beyond the gallery.
Shelves of vintage baubles, beads and chains are organized in rainbow fashion, so clients are invited to explore and be inspired. Our studio is bursting with creativity, and it's where the stories unfold.
