Lovely earrings, very pleased, new favourite for sure! Excellent seller, would do business with this lady again.
Creating unique designs in jewely!
I was introduced to the wonderful world of jewelry making while earning a Girl Scout badge of all things! Do you remember making your lanyard? What about the friendship bracelet or the bracelet made out of chewing gum wrappers? Those were the days! Then I graduated to belts and purses of macramé and wooden beads. (I'm dating myself, I know.) I don't remember a time in my life that I didn't have a coffee can full of beads, findings and string on my desk.
My creative spirit was put on hold while I earned my degree and started a career in the insurance industry. "belledesigns" was officially born in 1999 while I was at home being a momma to two beautiful girls. I loaded up the babies and we sold to local boutiques, attended many craft fairs and juried shows. I set up shop on Ebay and eventually Etsy. It was a joyous time in my life. When the girls started school I returned to my career, but I continued with belledesigns as my creative outlet. I have a little studio where I create and time seems to stand still, all stress disappears, laundry and dirty dishes and overdue expense reports don't exist-- it’s a magical place!
My designs are never really planned, they just happen. I've always admired the artist that will sketch and date their designs. That's not me. I open a box of beads and take off. So when I say unique designs, I mean it. No two are alike because honestly, I can't remember and you know I didn't write it down to begin with!
I love all things jewelry -- beads, gems, pearls, silks, buttons, bronze, brass, copper, sterling silver, argentium™ and 14KTGF bits and wire, tools, gizmos and gadgets! Shopping is always fun! I frequent the conventional bead shows, stores and catalogues but love to venture off into the unknown world of flea markets, antique stores, hardware stores and thrift shops.
belledesigns has been sold in many local boutiques and can currently be purchased at Urban Eve Boutique in Lake Jackson, Texas. If you're ever in the neighborhood, stop in and look around! Etsy is the best place to see my latest collection, and remember custom orders are always welcome, just drop me a note.
I truly appreciate each and every customer and hope you get as much joy wearing a belledesign as I had creating it.
Several of my designs are included in the book "1000 Jewelry Inspirations", by Sandra Salomony. Published by Quarry Books of Rockport Publishing
I am a Member of Self-Representing Artist Jewelry Designers #1443
For the curious, Belle is a nickname given to me by my father many, many.... many years ago!
I'm a self taught artisan that loves to play with beads. I designed/ redesigned my personal jewelry for years. And as the saying goes, I never thought anyone else would be interested, but they were. So belledesigns was officially born in 1999.
