Bellows has been exhibiting in art shows since she graduated from the University of Florida. Although she had never been trained in jewelry-making and in fact didn't even wear jewelry, Bellows began crafting silk jewelry in order to make ends meet. "What started as a commercial endeavor quickly became a love affair," she says. "I love making and wearing jewelry, but most of all sharing my love of color and design with my customers."
Bellows and her husband have been making "art-to-wear" jewelry pieces for 25 years. "When I wake up, I can't wait to get to work," Bellows says. "I feel tremendous gratitude too be able to paint and create beauty each day."
