Elisabeth Bell Jewelry
Elisabeth Bell Jewelry began in the Egyptian Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Beth Yorn, a student and budding designer 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 under Bessie Jamiesen 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 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. Soon a line of pendants was developed, each representing a different animal. Exact replicas are cast in various metals and accented with diamonds, precious and semi-precious stones which result in a special and raw design.
Elisabeth Bell Jewelry is handcrafted in Yorn’s Los Angeles Studio by Beth Yorn and her team. Each piece is designed soley by Beth Yorn. The collection includes pieces cast in 14k yellow gold, rose gold, white gold and platinum.
