sweetBella Jewelry is a gem forward, handmade jewelry line designed and created by Cindy Sassaman. Cindy draws inspiration from art, travel and the beautiful materials she gets to work with. An avid rock hound, Cindy’s love of gemstones is reflected in her work. Cindy follows responsible manufacturing practices by using sustainable, ethical elements such as recycled metals and conflict-free stones.
“I have always been fixated on making things. Coming from a creative family helped. My mom was a painter and glass artist. My aunt was an interior designer, jeweler, and sculptor... both were my creative mentors!”
Cindy studied photography at the University of Florida. After several years in San Francisco as a visual display designer, she and her family relocated to Cambria, California where she spends her days creating one of a kind jewelry pieces and planning her next adventure!
In addition to selling her jewelry both online and at several shops throughout California, Cindy also teaches metalsmithing workshops bi-monthly.
