Announcement   Troppo Bella means extroardinarily beautiful in Italian; so beautiful, that it is almost too beautful...

Curated by Elizabeth Thankful Shannon, an avid art student (Franklin Fine Arts, and The Putney School) and art connoisseur, who procured a degree Fashion Design and Fashion History in Italy. She is the granddaughter of an Italian seamstress, whose factory created stunning ready-to-wear for the top New York designers from the 50's - 80's. She has a passion for all things impeccably made, and an eye for detail.

VINTAGE: Mad about fashion and accessories, she carefully selects items based on uniqueness of line and pattern, and the quality of materials and construction. All eras created something special, so she hunts them out via fashionable friends, remote thriftstore shopping excursions, and via exclusivity on estate sales, listing each item thoroughly, with dimensions or measurements, and every minute detail, hoping to find them a perfect home.

JEWELRY: Elizabeth began making jewelry at age 12, starting with Swarovski crystals, and by age 15, she was soldering sterling, brass, and copper, and bezeling gemstones. Her jewelry is almost always one of a kind in color, pattern, and stone, or bead, selection. She welcomes the challenge of creating a unique statement piece to match any outfit, or a one-of-a-kind item in your preferred colors and stones.

HOME DECOR: Her home decor offerings are selected for their rarity, retro appeal, craftsmanship, and timelessness. She loves to upcycle items, bringing them into the 21st century, encrusting items with shells, decoupaging, painting, distressing, beading ordinary items, block printing, pouring organic soy candles into vintage containers, and so much more...

PHOTOGRAPHY: She first studied photography at age 10. Her current photos focus on the fluid and/or architectural dimensions of the botanical world, their vibrant hues, and the worlds within worlds that one only finds by delving deep inside the petals. She also has a strong affinity to birds, tiny insects, and architecture (the latter stems from the fact that she is the daughter of a world-renowned architect).
