Lana has been designing jewelry and “playing shop” in the Boston area for over 12 years. Her first retail venture, Lazuli Jewelry on Newbury St, named after Lana’s own jewelry line, launched her career as a jewelry designer and boutique owner and over the course of the decade functioned on all retail, wholesale and ecommerce fronts.
December Thieves, Lana’s newest concept, is a combination of a lifestyle boutique which houses small batch emerging designer fashion, accessory and home brands from independent designers from around the world, and a creative space which is being used to promote the work of Boston’s artistic community through intimate and interactive in-store events.
She is passionate about design and fashion and has short term plans to launch an in-house December Thieves brand, which will encompass jewelry in addition to other personal accessories. She is also in the midst of opening a second December Thieves location on Charles St this month.
When she’s not in design mode, Lana spends her time exploring and enjoying the many special nooks of the South End. She can be seen anywhere from sitting at Cinquecento’s bar with her husband Christo, to ducking into one of the neighborhood’s many specialty shops, to playing hide and seek at Peter’s Park with her two highly energetic toddlers.
