My jewelry designs are carried in several boutiques and gift shops around the United States, and as of 6/1/12, they are being carried right here in my neck of the woods in beautiful Northwest Arkansas at Bella LuElla! Bella LuElla is an eclectic shop that is located in the same neighborhood as our newest art museum, Crystal Bridges. I'm thrilled about this for two reasons: 1) it's the first shop in the area to carry my designs and, 2) this is a brand new shop that carries artwork and designs from local artists in addition to vintage, collectible art and books.
Bella LuElla is the brainchild of owner, Cynthia Morshedi. Cynthia was a designer by profession for many years, but she's always had a love of the arts and of creating, in general. After doing some serious soul searching, she decided to set up shop in Northwest Arkansas in order to help promote the arts in our area. And, Bella LuElla was born.
Bella LuElla is a charming shop set up in a vintage 1880's house. It consists of several rooms which are set up by theme. For example, one room houses jewelry, accessories and handmade soap products. Another room houses shabby chic and feminine pretties such as tutu's, fabric hair flowers, and little stuffed animals. (My handmade mini vintage hankie quilts are also displayed in this room.) Cynthia is planning to have a grand opening/reception in the near future. She also is planning to offer classes which will be taught by local artists.
If you are in the area, please take a moment to stop by and visit Bella LuElla. They are located at 1006 SW "A" Street, Bentonville, Arkansas, telephone (479) 644-8483. You can also check out their Facebook Page and blog. In the meantime, take a look at the pictures below for a sampling of what this fantastic little shop has to offer. Hope to see you there!
