designer, Malene "Lani" Davis, and her original inspiration behind the line; her mother, Claudia
casual hobby that was destined to be much, much more started as a
simple dream and conversation between sisters Mari ("iram") and Lani ("inal"
Davis) in 2007. With hard work, perseverance, and LOTS of quick
learning, their pastime quickly grew into a
full fledge fashion design business. Although Malene now
creates and designs alone, the spirit and vibrancy of the beautiful
creations developed by both sisters still lives on in the iram-inal line
Since leaving her 9-to-5 professional career to dive into the world of independent design, Malene has focused on creating voluminous, bold, and mainly sustainable creations. Her love and appreciation of the stylings of beautiful indigenous women of other cultures, and her belief in fostering a more eco-friendly environment today are the continuing inspirations for her line of handmade jewelry.
Initially inspired by her mother's bold vision and panache for fashion, Malene's vision has organically phased to having an emphasis on green design and bright, vivacious, statement-making pieces. She invests her energy into creating wearable, functional pieces that are always big & bold, while simultaneously being both fashion-forward & sustainable.
A native of St. Louis, MO, Malene proudly designs and personally handmakes the jewelry found in the collection each season. when not creating jewelry, she's proudly supporting other independent designers at her popular designer collective boutique, the beehive. She currently resides in Atlanta, GA with her supportive and loving husband, Bryan, and adopted pets.
