Elisabeth Bell Jewelry began in the Egyptian Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.Designer Beth Yorn, often found herself exploring the various ancient jewelry collections at the Met.
Fascinated by the beauty of the pieces and their intricate detail, she 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.
Since childhood, Yorn had a fascination with animals and at age fourteen she was volunteering at the local Audubon Society taking care of injured orphaned wildlife. Her passion for these wild animals deepened in her adult life, and inspired her to combine her two loves, nature and jewelry, by designing a collection that celebrates and symbolizes each unique creature.
Elisabeth Bell Jewelry is handcrafted in Yorn’s Los Angeles Studio. The collection includes pieces cast in 14k white, yellow and rose gold, platinum and pave diamond. Each piece reflects Yorn’s unfussy, yet glamorous aesthetic.
