Timeless precious metals, luminescent stone and delicate designs; Lacey Bones Jewelry is for the elegant woman who’s not afraid to show some edge. Inspired by ocean blues & salty air, she’s a woman well-traveled. With a personality strong as bones yet soft like lace, she’s looking for something versatile and alluring but unique and unexpected in every way!
Inspired by the life journeys of artist Marbella Charles, Lacey Bones Jewelry was born out of a storm—Superstorm Sandy, to be exact. While safely waiting out the aftermath in 2012, Marbella began to muse about her life and something she treasured dearly: her family and her travels. It was these experiences both near and far that inspire the work you see here today.
From sketching in grade school in Hong Kong to earning her BFA degree at Parsons New School of Design, Marbella has always been one to live creatively. During her time employed as a Design Director and Creative Merchandiser for various fashion lifestyle brand retailers, she alleviated the stress of a full-time New York City career by creating unique accessories and jewelry for friends and private clients.
Now focusing on jewelry making full time, Marbella’s delicate designs are crafted in her Jersey City studio, a welcoming change of pace from the NYC life. A frequent world traveler, Marbella pulls inspiration from the local artisans she’s met abroad and the vibrant cultures around them. From sketching to final design, Lacey Bones Jewelry strives to celebrate every woman’s desire to wander the globe, discover themselves and look fabulous while doing it!
