About the Artist
The daughter of an artist and a mother who created an environment where finding your own identity was a must, Isobel Walker’s creative tendencies were discovered at an early age. Her willingness to take risks and be different was nurtured throughout her young life. Designing clothes was the first creative outlet, when at the age of six she received a sewing machine. However it was not until she took a leave from her educational plans at the age of 19 that the inner artist truly emerged.
In 2003 Isobel began designing jewellery , and upon others noticing her pieces and asking where they could be purchased, decided that she would pursue the idea a bit further.
Wanting to have a label that would reflect the uniqueness of their pieces and their materials, predominantly repurposed vintage jewellery – Frash Femme (ready-to-wear) was born.
Isobel continued to hone her craft expanding once again due to the high demand of custom jewellery pieces. In 2005, upon request Isobel began designing a range of bridal jewellery. Recently due to demand Isobel has started a new company – Bel. This new company’s sole focus is Custom Bridal work, for both Brides and Bridal Boutiques.
The jewellery made under Bel. is delicate collections incorporate semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls & Swarovski crystal. The jewellery ranges include necklace, bracelet and earrings, can be bought individually and are available on gold or silver chain.
Isobel has attended trade-shows, and art exhibits throughout North America. Frash Femme & bel. accessories are available in high-end boutiques, ithroughought North America.
