Belle Brooke discovered her passions early on, with access to a photography darkroom in her Houston, Texas grade school. Art and photography persisted as interests, carrying her to earn her bachelor's degree in art from Pitzer College in Claremont, California. During her years of primarily photographing historic structures for the government, she simultaneously studied metalsmithing at the Crucible in Berkeley, CA. Though Brooke's attention was divided, her penchant for metalsmithing was obvious, and she followed the path to the Revere Academy in San Francisco.
After a move to Los Angeles, Belle Brooke Designs was officially incorporated, and the jewelry world immediately took notice. Belle Brooke Designs Inc. has received a multitude of awards, including JA New Designer of the Year, JCK Rising Star, and the Niche Award among others.
Belle Brooke finds balance in her yoga practice, skiing, and outdoor adventures around her Santa Fe, New Mexico home where you can also find her studio.
