Rich leathers. Chunky chains. Wrapped stones. Natural bone and horn. Every piece of jewelry that designer Theresa Wangia makes is steeped in her world of style. She arranges all of the elements to perfection in the brand known as Beltshazzar Jewels. A sophisticated collection of handmade jewelry and leather accessories that sweeps a woman effortlessly from day to night, and from urban to outback. Each one-of-a-kind piece is designed to be a treasured companion along the everyday journey that we call LIFE.
Theresa’s vibrant outlook is an expression of her life experiences. As a child in the 1970s, music and art shaped her aesthetic. Graced with a multiracial heritage, she embraced her roots with a deep desire to stand out and make a unique statement. Theresa’s grandmother was part Blackfoot Indian so her designs naturally evoke a tribal sense. Her working methods and materials are further inspired by indigenous cultures of the Amazon, Kenya, and Papua, New Guinea.
Times of challenge early on helped forge her inner faith and the resolve to endure and thrive. Today, her creative work is a testament to that irrepressible spirit.
“Beltshazzar Jewels is the perfect adornment for the modern day voyager.”
