As a first generation immigrant, Liv Portillo’s ties to the Filipino Culture and history are very evident. Both her parents immigrated to the US in order to dream of a better life for their children.
Planning to fulfill her parents' dreams and goals, 16 year old Liv was inspired to help her parents and family back home in the Philippines by opening her own small business. With only $40 she saved up to invest in her business, she began bending wire into name necklaces & selling her jewelry on her town streets to look for any customer who may be interested in her art. After creating videos of how she hand makes the jewelry in 2018, DBL jewelry became a social media sensation generating more than 300 Million views combined on all videos and 2.5 Million Social Media Followers.
Today, the iconic handmade personalized wire jewelry has not only allowed DBL Jewelry to expand worldwide to 50,000 customers across the globe, but has allowed Portillo’s aspirations of helping others come true for her family & many other children in need in the Philippines.
DBL Jewelry continues to operate as a family owned business and prioritizes giving back to the Philippines with every order.

Proceeds from our Mabuhay Collection are donated to Filipino Charities to help children living in poverty and Special Needs Students at Pasong Tamo Elementary School in Manila.
Turning a piece of wire into beautiful jewelry represents this inspirational story in which a Filipino Small Business owner started from nothing and but worked hard to turn her dreams into a reality!
