To celebrate our incredible artisans and all of the gorgeous products that were made last year, we are highlighting our Founder and CEO’s top 5 favorite pieces from last year. All of our artisan-made jewelry supports those in need and helps us provide employment for those who need it most. Much of our product is sustainably sourced and each product is ethically hand-crafted. Keep reading for Julie’s five favorite accessories from last year.
The Isabella Necklace is named after one of Julie's youngest granddaughters, so it holds a special place in her heart. The blue hues in the lapis lazuli beads represent the joy she brings to their lives. Not only is this an easy to wear piece, but it is very light weight, making it a great everyday necklace.
This intricately hand-crafted pair of earrings highlights the amazing skills of the Artisans in Haiti. Their attention to detail and the quality of this design is just amazing! The Devon Earrings are made from gold and brass beads, making the perfect, classic statement piece.
This best-selling wrap bracelet highlights the amazing skills of our Artisans in Mexico. Each bead is hand-woven onto this stunning wrap bracelet. This piece is neutral enough for everyday wear, but the sea-green, white and silver beads help make an elegant statement.
This mixed-metal bracelet is so easy to wear. It pairs beautifully with other bracelets and easily complements any outfit. In 2019, Vi Bella used both gold and silver recycled metals in so many of our pieces. From our Christmas ornaments to stunningly popular jewelry. The Erin Bracelet encapsulates the mixed-metal jewelry trend that we featured this past year.
The Bianca Wristlet is Julie's favorite little bag that she carries everywhere she goes! It is a convenient size for just the essentials, her phone and cards. We love that this clutch uses sustainable fabric made from recycled plastic bottles that have been collected from the slums of Haiti and spun into something beautiful.
As we look ahead into the New Year, we are confident that 2020 will hold a bright future for Vi Bella and our artisans. We can’t wait to share our Spring Collection with you. It is coming soon! Stay tuned to see what ethical spring jewelry trends we are loving in 2020.
