You know what does it for me? Good jewelry. But let’s be clear: my definition of “good” may not be the standard that most people think of. I’m not much of a bling person, you know? I tend to favor simple beauty and gorgeously crafted elements rather than overwrought and loud adornments. Sure, those have their time and place, too, but give me impeccable form with a nod to geometry and I’m all in. I’m also a simple girl in that I prefer metals to gems any day of the week.
Erica Bello creates my dream baubles. Her jewelry is a nod to the fine art of metalsmithing and the juxtaposition between form and function enhances the very reason I seek out jewelry in the first place. If its function is to adorn, Bello answers that call with grace and style and respect. This Miniature Reliquary and Black Druzi Ring are on my short list for must have items. (Although, to be honest, there is not a piece here I wouldn’t wear.) Since we aim to bring the sunshine to you (and not just in the month of July), Erica Bello Jewelry is a good place to start, don’t you think?
