Designer Spotlight: Black Betty by Kristin Weixelbaumer
Founded in 2012, Black Betty and its nighttime counterpart Black Gold, have already built a cult following within the fashion set. With a range of handcrafted rings, necklaces, bracelets and more fashioned from precious gems and stones sourced from Kristin’s travels, Black Betty has captured the hearts of everyone from dedicated festival goers to fashion week regulars. As a bonafide jewelry buff herself, Kristin states, “I believe jewelry shouldn’t be mere decoration. When a mutual respect exists between the designed piece and it’s owner, one honors the origin of the material, and its inherent providence. The reward for consciously adorning oneself with jewelry is a sense of femininity, intent, and connectedness.”
