Mister Bell's BIG Launch!!...

Hi everyone...well, today is the day! After much hard work and many a long hour, Mister Bell has finally launched his brand new shop, FULLY stocked to the brim with two *brand new* debut jewellery collections and the full inventory of his stunning new one off  handbag designs...I am so happy to be able to tell you a bit more about what he has been feverishly working on, today...

The shop is broken down into three categories for you to browse through...

The Menagerie CollectionA collection of elegant, whimsical, but defiantly fun creatures, borne from his own illustrations and doodles, each character is hand pierced from sheet sterling silver and carefully hand finished. Beautiful quality and decidedly wearable, these designs are perfect for every day wear and to add a touch of humour to any outfit. Entirely handmade in the workshop we share in Glasgow...


The Woodland Collection: A stunning collection of hand fused, wood and nature inspired pieces, which range from dramatic and theatrical to delicate and perfectly wearable for day to day. 
All the pieces are hand made from sterling silver, and combine beautiful semi-precious gemstones beads, freshwater pearls, and vintage japanese cabochon flowers. Entirely handmade in the workshop we share in Glasgow.


Handbags: Created in his Belfast studio, every single DesireLines bag Mister Bell makes is a one off design, never to be repeated in exactly the same way again. He loves the creative challenge this affords him, dreaming up new and exciting colour and texture combinations each time, and knowing that every customer will be carrying something totally unique to them! Each bag is crafted from the finest of materials, hand woven Scottish tweeds, tartans and buttersoft Italian leathers and expensive, luxurious and unusual hardwear

*{I am a HUGE fan of  his handbags, and own three myself, so can swoon and wax lyrical galore about their dreamy quality and beautiful finish!! You know...I think I have already ;)}


You can read a little more about Mister Bell's back-ground {in his own cheeky words!} right here ... ;)

 ...I hope you will all enjoy browsing the work as much as I have! I know I may be biased, as this boy is my love, but he really is one hell of a talented chap and I am sure his new work is going to go down a storm!

Stay tuned for some collaboration work we have in store in the coming months...handbags, jewellery and even some home products. I plan to, at last, get back to my love of pattern design...so you can see what Mister Bell + me + a sewing machine + inspiration galore + a jewellery workshop + a computer, can come up with.

I hope you'll agree, it's quite an exciting prospect ;)

So...without further ado - www.desirelines.bigcartel.com is officially OPEN!!!

...spread the word friends!

At last - a real window to show the amazing talent of Mr Bell - Photographer, Bag Maker, Jeweller.... WOW!
I can second what Abigail says about the beautiful bags, I am lucky enough to have one - it is beautiful, the quality of the materials and the standard of finish is exceptional.
So, if you covet a bag, go for it as you could miss out on these wonderful one offs!!
The creative influence these two have on each other is inspiring - can't wait to see what comes next!! VEP xx
