I'm inspired by gemstones, crystals, metals, colors, and tribal patterns. My design begins with visually seeing color combination, metal pieces and gemstones I'm wanting to work with and I build from there. I love the beauty, healing power and energy of gemstones and crystals, and am very much tuned into them when creating. My intention is to not only create a one-of-a-kind unique piece of jewelry, but for you to find the piece that calls specifically to you! Each piece has been thoughtfully crafted with attention, love and care. Some of my pieces included unique casted metal components that I've ethically sourced from metalsmiths and lapidaries located around the world.
>>> How I Got Started <<<
I'm a self-taught jewelry designer and began making jewelry in 2009 after I lost my two-month-old daughter to a rare genetic syndrome. Looking for any sort of healing, I became intrigued with gemstones and their metaphysical healing properties for the mind, body, and spirit. I began making gemstone bracelets for myself and later for my friends and family. My new found hobby gave me an outlet to channel my grief and also gave me a renewed passion and purpose for life. I've always had a love for fashion and accessories, and jewelry was the perfect fit, allowing me to discover a hidden love and creativity within myself that I never knew existed.
In 2012, I officially turned my hobby into a business and named it after my daughter, Isabella Rae Jewelry. After 7 years in business, I felt it was time to provide closure to that chapter of my life, and in 2019, I re-branded Isabella Rae Jewelry to the new name of, TRIBU!
TRIBU is based out of Arizona, where all orders are thoughtfully packaged and shipped with in 1-3 business days.
It is my sincere wish that you love my pieces as much as I love creating them. Thank you for shopping with me and allowing me to share my creativity with you!
