Dana Mitchell, a labor and delivery nurse for more than 12 years, started adorn512 in 2010 in reponse to the lack of retailers in her Chicago-area suburb. She missed the energy of Chicago boutiques and the creativity these retailers inspired. Dana also thought the hip women she had befriended in her neighborhood deserved more–so she brought it to them!

adorn512 boomed in its first year thanks to cool wrap bracelets and popular bauble necklaces. In 2011, Dana has added a variety of new lines and designers, including Silhouette Art from Vana Chupp, handstamped jewelry from Melissa Knieriem, and the popular Dogeared line. Dana continues to use her eye for fashion to bring the latest trends and the work of inspiring artisans.
