Dan Levin Originals Closed

Tamara Weaver shares this with you…
“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” Dan Levin Originals has closed it’s doors, and after 34 years in business, Dan and Diane Levin are dancing off into the sunset.
Dan and Diane’s original hand-crafted gold pendants — the Islands heart… the orca tail with sparkle of diamond… those pendants which catch me staring when worn by fortunate friends, are now collectables. We’ve missed our chance. Because, on August 14 this year, on Dan’s 80th birthday, he knew it was time to close the doors to their cute little shop on 50 First Street and travel!
By the way, Dan’s secret to looking so great at 80 is walking 2–4 miles, every day, and being married to his wonderful wife, Diane. They were married in this van 50 years ago! When asked which of his pendants best represents their work, without hesitation, Dan chose the dolphin and anchor pendant, because it reminds him of their love and lifelong partnership.
Happy retirement, Dan and Diane!

A GREAT Couple of people, Dan & Diane! A wish for a Happy and Joyful Retirement, Thanks for your Smiles and Helpful advice. Sorry I’ll miss my wife’s 30 anniversary gift from you.…
Excellent news for the Levins, sad news for islanders. Dan’s jewelry items are part of what make this area unique.
I have worn my oyster and pearl pendant for over 25 years At the age 92 it is the only jewelry I have worn in years.
It is amazing how many strangers have commented on it — I have so many happy memories
of my visits to your store.
My husband and children bought me the Heart of the Islands pendant in 2016, and I have lost it. I am heartbroken as I am unable to replace now the store has closed.
I’ve been trying to track down a photo of the oyster and pearl pendant for many years. If anyone has a photo please let me know!! I’d be so grateful!! Many happy memories of the shop and people.
I lost my Soaring Gull necklace and was hoping to replace it. So happy you have been able to retire, enjoy
