Marisabel was born in New York, raised in Colombia, South America, Paraguay, El Salvador and Puerto Rico. Her mother was born in Capetown, South Africa and her father was of Puerto Rican decent. The variety of cultural backround caused her to develop a global view and love for all people, a fascination with color, texture, nature and art.
Today, Marisabel continues to make jewelry. She uses the best foundational materials to make durable, handcrafted and custom pieces. Marisabel’s clients are every day people who like to wear one of a kind pieces, made especially for them, taking into account their own input in the design process. Having a choice of semi-precious stones, Austrian Crystals, Czech Glass and Japanese seed beads, clients choose the length of their necklace, the style of the earring, and the color scheme that they prefer. Marisabel also offers one of a kind pieces that are ready for purchase.
Marisabel’s Studio Gallery & Boutique
During her early teen years, Marisabel attended the Art Student’s League in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Being too young to hold a legal job, she started making jewelry when her Grandma got rid of some beaded necklaces. Marisabel took all the beads apart and make earrings which she sold to the tourists in Old San Juan. After High School she attended the Escuela de Artes Plasticas, also in Old San Juan. There she studied print making and painting.
