Beatrice Marisa Bosquez was born and raised in a tiny Texas town alongside the Gulf Coast of Mexico. The slow pace of the forgotten cotton-picking town left much time to daydream about far off places and imaginary lives. Marisa found refuge in books and make-believe; She always knew she wanted to be an artist of some sort.
Marisa studied Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. During school, she spent a year in Florence, Italy and earned her BA in Fashion Design in 2003. After some time in New York working with handbag designer Andrea Brueckner, she found herself back in Texas. Upon returning to Texas, Marisa discovered her love of jewelry working under fine jewelers Anthony Nak and later designer Natalie Tischler of Ornamental Things.In 2009, Marisa decided it was time to introduce her own collection- Bosquez Jewelry. Later Beatrice Jewelry sprung from her desire to create easy and affordable jewelry inspired by her life so far- memories, people, places and the everyday.
Beatrice Jewelry is hand made from raw brass components in Austin, Texas. Borrow my memory or assign yours- wear it as your own.
