"Dana and Melissa are the creators with the imagination behind DyNamo. We had met a lifetime ago, through a friend, in which they realized they had shared many of the same hobbies and interests. DyNamo all started after I had been making jewelry for myself and thought it would be fun to continue to keep making jewelry. Working full time as a social worker, using my hands to create became a form of art therapy. After some time I had proposed the idea to Melissa, who had similar interests in doing crafty things, like knitting, to see if she would be interested in combining forces to form a business.
The name Dynamo was born after we had sat down trying to think of a good way to combine both of our names. Melissa frequently goes by the nickname Mo, and we also know that awesome things happen we get together, so Dynamo just seemed to fit.
Creating accessories was the obvious choice since the economy was tanking and people did not have a lot of money to spend on things that were not a necessity. Accessories are the easiest way to get a ton of mileage out of a wardrobe without having to go out and buy all new clothes. Many of our items are inspired by runway trends, and re-inventing existing materials."
