Belle Brooke Jewelry
Belle Brooke Barer's artistic career started in a darkroom at her grade school in Houston, Texas. Her pursuit of art and photography continued throughout her college studies and led her to the possibilities of metalsmithing. She trained at the Revere Academy in San Francisco, worked as a goldsmith for other artists and founded Belle Brooke Designs in 2006.
Brooke has earned many awards in her storied career, including the Spectrum Award and the JA New Designer of the year.
Her designs pull from yin and yang energy in order to create symmetry and harmony in an otherwise asymmetrical piece of jewelry. Each piece is handcrafted in Santa Fe, New Mexico from recycled sterling silver, 14 and 18 karat gold, semi-precious gemstones, and recycled diamonds.
