At only 25, Memphian Becca Belz is already an accomplished business owner and operator; hand-making all of her jewelry and successfully managing her own sales, marketing and PR. She crafts jewelry from chains, gemstones, crystals, and metal creating richly textured statement pieces that are really quite affordable. Like me, you have probably seen and admired her jewelry around town. When I learned of her recent trunk show held at her parents’ beautiful east Memphis home, I set out to meet this talented Memphis gal myself. I am so thrilled to feature Becca, who is also a savvy StyleBlueprint reader, and her jewels on our blog!
Becca Belz
Born and raised in Memphis, Becca attended Lausanne Collegiate School before heading to Atlanta’s prestigious Emory University for her marketing degree. Her passion for jewelry making started at the ripe age of 10 when she had a birthday party at a local bead store. She has busied her hands ever since, experimenting with all sorts of materials such as string, polymer, clay, beads, stones and metals. While still in high school Becca sought out continuing education classes in silver jewelry fabrication at Memphis College of Art and continued to take classes while in Atlanta at Collanwolde. After graduation, her passion led her to New York City where she worked and studied under jeweler Robert Lee Morris and continued taking jewelry making classes at Studio Jewelers, Ltd.
Gorgeous, funky and fabulous!

Black Crystal Earrings

Becca collects her materials everywhere from Memphis and New York to China. “I love travelling for inspiration and to source new, unusual stones. I get a lot of the inspiration for a specific piece from the stones. I also love reading articles and blogs (like this one) and seeing what people want to wear now. I have a fast turnaround so I can keep up with the trends and seasons.” says Becca.

Her pieces are distinct and recognizable and many are adjustable, so you can wear them different ways depending on your mood. She describes her design aesthetic as Bohemian chic (ME TOO, no wonder!), “The earthiness of the natural stones combined with the chunky industrial chains creates a unique look. Statement pieces, yet wearable,” she says. When it comes to her personal favorite jewelry designers, Becca likes Yossi Harari and H. Stern.

Currently her jewelry can be found at Josephs, Oak Hall, Lansky 126 at The Peabody, Unlaced in Collierville and Anthropologie Shoes & Accessories in Nashville but she is keen on expanding her sphere of influence. On a recent trip to Memphis, race car driver Danica Patrick even picked up a piece of Becca’s jewelry from Lansky 126 which is really something to brag about!

Freshwater Pearl Earrings

One thing that I love most about Becca’s line is that the quality is very fine but the prices make the pieces very accessible. Earrings start at $45, necklaces and bracelets start at $65 and as of now, there are no pieces over $250. “I really like the fact that you can get a great, rich look and not spend your entire month’s savings,” says Becca. Don’t we all, girl, don’t we all! 

Freshwater Pearl Earrings

When she is not making jewelry (which is hardly ever) Becca enjoys relaxing with family and her four-legged family members at the Shelby Farms dog park, taking in some University of Memphis basketball games and shows at the Orpheum.

You can have the treat of checking out her gorgeous designs in person today and tomorrow at the lobby at the Peabody Hotel!
