On The Move – Andrea Barna

Written by Hubert Delany, 9 years ago, 0 Comments


Andrea began her career in fashion at the young age of 19, working at W Magazine and WWD in the accessories department. Quickly falling in love with all things stylish, Andrea soon set her sights on starting her own jewelry business. She found what was lacking in the industry. A fun take on sophisticated jewelry, at accessible price points.  She wanted everyone to be able to wear it, and A by Andrea Barna was born.


Quickly gaining national coverage in Instyle and WWD, A by Andrea Barna was on the map as a designer to watch. Soon to follow were accounts at Neiman Marcus, Fred Segal Ron Herman, and Henri Bendel. The expansion of her collection soon went worldwide with accounts in Europe and Asia, including the prestigious Victoria and Albert museum In London.

A by  Andrea Barna jewelry is a full collection of earrings necklaces rings and bracelets.

Celeb clients include Angelina Jolie, J.LO, Beyonce Knowles, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Poppy Montgomery, Marcia Gay Hardin and countless stylists and editors.

After the success of A by Andrea Barna, the highly anticipated Threads Of Friendship line was launched.


As seen on countless celebs including Vanessa Hudgens, Bridget Medler, Kirsti Alley, Gloria Estefan, Ireland Baldwin, and Willow Smith, and on The Zoe Report, Fox News, and CBS, Threads Of Friendship is sold at high end boutiques and websites throughout the world. The line consists of woven and embellished friendship bracelets and silk neon and darker colored bold bracelets.

A part of proceeds are donated to The Walkabout Foundation.
