Brass flowers and stone


When my sweet friend, Jeanine, designer of Alex and Vina, sent over these gorgeous brass and floral pieces, I got excited about the idea of photographing them in bright light. So when sun finally decided to make a special appearance with its 62-degree temperature, we headed out to let them sparkle.
My first thought was contrasting color palettes by coupling the look with brown heels, but then I couldn't stop looking at me feet when I wanted more focus on the jewelry, so I went back to the closet and back to basics with the discovery of these Steve Madden boots. Her collection is so well conceptualized, and completely committed to enduring repeat wear that I felt compelled to put it in the vein as some of my other go-to favorites... like satin coral for added beachiness. Subsequently pulled it all together with the universal denim style staple and then realized I was mishmashing a little bit, which I kinda love.

(Miss Me denim jacket, Alex and Vina Flowers and Stone ring and White Tridacna Stone Multi Chain bracelet, Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses, Steve Madden A-Yoko boots, Forever 21 tights, H&M ruffle vest, American Apparel bodysuit, Victoria's Secret tap pants)

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!

Designs by Bella: Vintage Lollipops x Magazzini del Sale Capsule Collection

Last year, Italian designer Graziano Moro of Magazzini Del Sale contacted me about collaborating and designing a five-piece Limited Edition capsule collection for their SS 11 Love Can Change the World t-shirt line. Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
