A Little About Nola Bella Jewelry
What started out as a hobby has now grown into the full-fledged jewelry line, NolaBella. Jill Scharmen felt she needed a creative outlet from her technical job in the apparel industry, and has always loved and collected jewelry. With some “how-to” classes behind her, she started making creations out of seed beads (the craze at the time), and with each new piece came a new compliment. From there, most of what she designed was self-taught, and she quickly moved into more expensive and better quality stones.
Over time, Jill saw herself develop a certain style that is deep in vintage inspiration; taking cues from the 60’s all the way to the 80’s, and of course from the decade she remains true to as a self-proclaimed 70’s child. Ever since, Jill has strived to retain that unique and one-of-a-kind feel to all of her pieces. She chooses materials that include sterling silver and 14k gold filled components. Her pieces wouldn’t be complete without semi-precious and gemstones alike, as well as natural shell, coral and the ever present black mother of pearl.
NolaBella Jewelry can be found in boutiques in San Francisco as well as other retailers across the United States.
