About

You are beautiful. You are Bella. Jewelry for the Bellas.

It was an opportunity that didn't come along everyday. The chance to see and touch gems cut by the hand of an award-winning artist; amethysts and garnets, tsavorites and tourmalines, aquamarines...the list goes on. I knew I was out of my league before I even left.

I dressed to the nines. Hoping that my nicest shoes and make-up would somehow make my bank account bigger than it really was, and all the while wanting above all things to not look like I didn't belong. My husband saw it too, I'm guessing it was the shoes. He didn't join me that night, opting instead to watch the little one, and on my way out, he said something to me that I'll never forget.

"Please remember no matter what you see tonight, that you are the most valuable thing in that room."

It was hard to believe as a little parcel of gems came my way with a cool $23K listed on the price tag, but as the night wore on and brightly colored earth candies one after the other slipped in and out of my palms, I realized he was right.

Everyday I create under the title of La Bella Joya, the Beautiful Jewel, head full of rubies and emeralds, sapphires and pearls, and even turquoise and agate. But that night my husband reminded me who the real Beautiful Jewel was, it's me. It's him. It's our daughter. It's my niece and nephews, my sisters, the list goes on. The beautiful jewel, la bella joya, is the irreplaceable. It's you.

There will always be more amethyst, there will always be another ruby, but there will never ever be another me, and there will never ever be another you.

You are valuable.
You are beautiful.

You are...bella.

My name is Marcie Abney Carroll the hands and heart behind La Bella Joya. If you'd like to ask me something, please feel free to contact me.

    An accidental artist, I discovered jewelry making while attempting to repair a store-bought beaded ring. I never fixed the ring, and instead went on to make my own. Four years later I'm still making rings...and bracelets, necklaces, pendants.

Additional policies and FAQs

Thank you for your time!

Care and Keeping of Laminate:
Each laminate piece is made from laminate tile samples that are durable and lightweight. The front of the piece will be water resistant (think kitchen counter top), but the back of the piece will be pressed wood and is NOT waterproof. Please do not submerge the piece. If it gets a smudge or stain on the front, wipe gently with a damp paper towel (one that has been moistened and rung out). Please also hang your necklace to store, this will avoid any knots or kinks in the chain. Thank you for purchasing a Bella Joya original!
