Teen Bella Weems launches own jewellery line

Origami OwlBella, the social-selling jewellery company known for its customizable lockets, bracelets and earrings, recently launched in the Canadian market. The brand offers people the chance to be entrepreneurs by becoming an independent designer.

Bella Weems, 19, (pictured at left) is the brains behind this project. She founded the company five years ago when she decided she wanted a car by the time she was 16 and knew she would have to earn the money herself. That led her to found her own line of customizable jewellery.

Over 1,000 designers have already signed on in Canada and the number is growing. You can host a jewellery bar and earn hostess rewards. This can also earn you free jewellery, discount rewards and more.OrigamiOwl

When asked about who would be the ideal candidate to sign up, Bella said, “This opportunity has given many people the chance to own their own businesses, make their own hours and earn an incredible income while still having a work/life balance. So I think it is an opportunity for anyone looking to have the freedom to do the things they have always wanted to do.”

Bella’s favorite piece is the Red Enamel Locket Face and Base because the Living Locket is where it all began. “I wanted to teach people how to tell their own story through a locket. What I put inside my locket changes often! I choose charms based on how I feel and what I strive to accomplish on that particular day.”

There’s a slew of new collections including the Summer Collection, Core Collection, Bridal and Inscriptions line that offers something for everyone.

Bella told us what her favorites are: “Right now I am loving items from our new Summer Collection – they are so cute!  The glass of lemonade, flip flops, sailboat, seashell and beach ball charms remind me of the beach even though I live in the desert.”

    Love this product! And everyone is so nice and helpful, at least they are in our little group. Bella is such an inspiration. It’s more than jewellery, its an emotion and a way to tell your story. She founded it back in 2010 with her moms help. I had someone, kinda sarcastically ask, why would you follow a teenager as a leader and i told her: Why wouldn’t I, she still sees the world as a place of opportunity and hope, unjaded by years of living in the real world and all its ugly. It may sound cliché, but she reminds me of the hopes and dreams i once had before life got in the way, and because of Origami Owl, and the optimistic nature of their mission statement i now focus on lifes positive and no longer dwell on things i shouldn’t. And i think that’s pretty amazing and much needed in my little world.

    I’m one of the founding members in Canada #200148057. I joined as a leap of faith and even though there have been hickups with the launch, i have no regrets. I wear my story proudly and i change it often! i was worried about quality, the jewellery is awesome, a great quality and if something isn’t as good as it should be, O2 customer service is quick to send a replacement. If you need any help or advice there is literally a team of ladies ready to help.

    I was worried that they might be pushy and cult like (i joined one twenty years ago that was.) and they aren’t, their just regular ladies who want to be a force for good and love jewellery as much as i do.
