"Beatrix Bell is the LSU MOA store's newest local jewel. A Capitol High School art teacher by day and an artisan who brings precious stones to light by night, she began jewelry making as a hobby while in high school. When she was only 19 years of age, her skills and original styles caught the eye of the Greater Baton Rouge Arts Council jury-sponsored Arts Market. Bell's jewelry designs were featured at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Convention in 1999 early in her career. She still presents her work at the monthly Arts Markets. This 2005 LS graduate has here jewelry designs featured in stores throughout Baton Rouge, Shreveport and South Beach Florida. As her star rises, catch her unique designs at the LSU Museum Store downtown and make sure you get your wish. Stop by the LSU MOA Museum Store at the Shaw Center for the Arts to find a variety of Bell's intricate creations."
