Drip by AKVoorhies, or Drip, is online business here in Baton Rouge, LA. Alana creates gold-filled and heavy gold-plated jewelry that is extremely affordable, hypoallergenic and tarnish- proof. Alana studied merchandising apparel, textiles and international business in college. During this time, she studied abroad in Milan and Barcelona to learn more about styling and business.
Alana combined her knowledge from school and passion for style to launch an attainable jewelry line for young women. She says she has always wanted to start a jewelry business. Over time, she has bought material to create with, but had not started to use it until 2020 when she committed to growing her brand. She finally started this adventure when her boyfriend bought her the tools she needed and forced her to finally start creating. Alana plans to start making more accessories in the meantime...with a long term goal of becoming a luxury jeweler.
Since starting her business, she has been able to sell so many of her creations, without even paying for any marketing. Through friends and family, the business has been able to grow immensely through Instagram promotions. Within her first two months, Alana got 100 orders. Every piece is delivered in a gorgeous custom blue jewelry bag with Alana's logo.
Alana said she really wants to have an order go out to each of the 50 states by the end of 2021, and she is half way there! I personally am an avid customer of Alana's and have purchased multiple custom pieces for her. Alana can help create any piece of jewelry you have in mind, with a guarantee of great quality and price! If you like jewelry as much as I do, do yourself a favor and get some Drip ASAP!
