On Etsy since 2006

Over a decade ago, sisters Jeanne Holland and Wendy Mullane created the renown "encased glass" design style and Formed Vintaj Design Studios. This Czech vintage inspired jewelry showcased fine vintage and contemporary European glass, crystal, and various other complimentary artisan materials. After creating Vintaj Design Studios, Jeanne and Wendy had their hearts set on sharing their design wealth with the artisan community. They, along with their close friend Jess Lincoln, formed Vintaj Natural Brass Co (incorporated in 2005) by collectively presenting their signature design style and their treasured eco-friendly jewelry components to the beading market. This effort resulted in today's worldwide filigree revival jewelry trend. Now reaching worldwide markets, Vintaj employs numerous family and community members.

Bella Vintaj Jewelry is handcrafted in the USA with the finest materials; artisan finished natural brass, a pure metal that is nickel and lead free, Swarovski Crystal, Czech Republic glass, and fresh water pearls. We have taken great care to emulate the natural occurrence of patina and shine throughout time. As you wear your Bella Vintaj Jewelry, it will begin to take on an appearance unique to you! This change is intentional and enhances the character of your jewelry. These “love worn values” vary from the luster of antique bronze to the brilliance of rose gold depending on how often you wear it.

The Bella Vintaj jewelry design team members are: co-founders, Wendy Mullane and Jeanne Holland along with their daughters Mackie Vossenkuhl and Ainsley Holland. The combined field experience and education of this fine team spans a century.
