A typical day in my life includes…

working on my home loan business during the day and evening and weekends working on myDawnStar™ jewelry business. Then squeezing in a pilates class here and there to stay sane.

I was born…

in Tokyo, Japan on an Air-force Base. Then my family moved to Sacramento, CA where I was raised.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the desert landscape with the large red rocks. It’s so natural and beautiful.

I’m listening to…

Spotify that plays a list of chill songs that keep me calm and creative like Tycho or Andrew Bell. Then once in awhile I throw in some Bob Marley to lift my mood.

My family…

is very important to me and supportive.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

the band members of Depeche Mode since I recently saw them in their last global tour concert. I loved them as a young teen and still love them for their creativity in music before electronic was really popular.

One thing I cannot live without…

chocolate.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

in fashion as a buyer or a veterinarian; was always torn between two worlds…the earthy granola nature side and the city girl/world traveler side.

I’m inspired by…

nature and all things creative.

The one person who motivates me is…

my son Myles, I want to be an example for him to never quit and would love to help him to travel and see the world.

My personal style…

involves layers, clean lines, with a lil funky edge or splash of color.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

for every one to love themselves and have respect and love for each other.

The perfect day would be…

somewhere in Thailand or Australia shopping for new rare gems that will be in my jewelry creations then relaxing watching the sunset near the ocean.

My first job was…

Subway, not exciting but my manager let us listen to Depeche Mode at night so that was a bonus.

My favorite escape…

is when I have a little down time and can go get a massage or facial to have some me time.

My life…

is very fulfilling with wonderful friends and family and very busy at the moment.

I’m currently working on…

how to build my new jewelry business to be prepared for major growth and my next collection showing.

Always…

staying positive and grateful.

Never…

unappreciative.

Favorite Quote…

“I’m Beautiful, I’m Bountiful, I’m Blissful” – Yogi Bhajan.

Biggest Dream…

to have a tropical retreat center that encourages self love and restoration for the mind, body, and soul in collaboration with talented people from around the world.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

are when people are dishonest or hypocritical, only few things in life get under my skin and those are them.

More about Doun…

Doun Lambert is the founder of DawnStar™ and from Carlsbad, CA in the North San Diego area. A few years ago she was searching for holistic modalities that encouraged self care and self love so had gotten certified in Yoga, Reiki, Crystal Healing, and Reflexology while still working in finance as a mortgage loan officer. It was not until she began creating jewelry using natural crystals that she felt excited and fulfilled when seeing others light up when wearing her creations. This lead to her to creating body adornments that are associated with chakras and one’s energy and educating them on the stones. That is how her brand DawnStar came to fruition. Her name means “Star” in Thai (her mother is Thai). And, now here she is a year later going to Phoenix Fashion Week, feeling very blessed.
