Designs By Tela

It all started with making “Sister Bracelets” for my two sisters and me. I was hooked and now here we are. I let my intuition guide me for each piece I create. Last summer, I was fortunate enough to start studying the art of silversmithing. I’m slowly adding to my portfolio of rings, bracelets, and earrings. I also do custom orders!
