beauty and brains…the coveted combo that is beguiled by all but only so lucky to be bestowed on a few. so starts the inspiring tale of Beth Yorn, a nyc based model, who used her time in between modeling jobs to explore her love of nature and jewelry at the metropolitan museum of art. exhilarated by the beauty and intricacy of various ancient jewelry collections in the egyptian wing, Beth decided to learn how to make them for herself. she signed up to study the art of metal-smithing at the jewelry and arts institute in nyc and soon after Elisabeth Bell Jewelry was born.
combining her affections for nature and jewelry, Beth has designed a collection that celebrates and symbolizes wild life. a passion of Beth’s since childhood, when she volunteered at the local audubon society taking care of injured orphaned wildlife. a line of beautiful pendants was developed, each representing a different animal…eagles, bobcats and hawks have been exactly replicated down to their claws and talons which are cast in various metals and accented with diamonds, precious and semi-precious stones making each piece a unique work of art.
Elisabeth Bell Jewelry is handcrafted in Yorn’s los angeles studio and the line has recently expanded from its signature pendant necklaces, to include simple and elegant earrings, rings and bangles. each piece reflects Yorn’s simplistic, yet glamorous aesthetic.
Elisabeth Bell Jewelry is worn and loved by the designer’s celebrity fans, including reese witherspoon, cameron diaz, sandra bullock, gwyneth paltrow, mimi rogers, maria menounos, rose mcgowan and beth stern. learn more about Beth below and visit www.elisabethbelljewelry.com to view the beautiful collection…
