These juicy pieces make me remember that Spring and Summer follow Winter. There is hope!
Bella Jewels bio: My jewelry is made expressly for the discerning who prefer authentic, expertly crafted everlasting adornments. Not meant to be fleeting trends…but rather to bespeak the beauty….spirit and individual style of the wearer.
Self taught metalsmith with a background (degrees..really, who cares) in apparel design and textiles I have made jewelry designing my full-time professional career for the last twenty five years. The desire to create burns like a fire in my soul (I am not kidding you). I want you to feel the passion resonate in my work.
Because this has been my livelihood for so many years, many of my pieces..if not most, have become signature..especially the gemstone encrusted vine, stem and hoop earrings and the arc necklaces. I have clients reaching back over two decades who continue to collect this style exclusively. I rarely make tasseled adornments anymore, but long flowing thickly tasseled earrings and necklaces were, many years ago, also signature and original.
I was juried in and have shown in the widely known ACC and Rosen craft shows. My work (both wirewrapped and sterling metalwork) has been in the American Museum for Women in D.C…the Baltimore Museum of Art..some smaller, lesser known museums and dozens of galleries throughout the nation.
