Thesesa Bidwell started Bidwell Designs in 2002. As a working mom, Theresa felt she needed something girly and beautiful to embrace in her very male world of a husband, three sons, brothers, and a male dominated workplace. Theresa started beading initially as an art therapy activity with a family member with Alzheimers. She then realized that creating jewelry was just what she needed. “I like pretty things” she says as she creates her jewelry using semi-precious gemstones, gold vermeil, sterling silver and 14k gold. Theresa’s pieces range from the simple and graceful for everyday, to the bold and modern. Designed to enhance other pieces from her collection, they are perfect for combining and layering to really make a statement.
