La Conchita artist Dr. Bonnie Kelm’s line of jewelry—Bella Kaye Designs—will be featured in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art Store on State Street in Santa Barbara. A retired art history professor and museum director, Kelm began her “second act” in 2007 writing, making art and creating jewelry with antique and vintage elements after serious health challenges forced her in new directions professionally.
Her jewelry has been sold in upscale boutiques on the East Coast and locally in places like Barbara’s Concierge Consignment and Renaissance on State Street, Ojai International and Antiques on Main in Cambria. Currently, Kelm has works at the Lotusland Gift Shop and the Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts. The Santa Barbara Museum of Art Store will showcase Kelm’s work on Santa Barbara’s First Thursday, Dec. 5. For more information, email the artist at email@example.com, or call (805) 815-5198.
