Michelle Trachtenberg is keeping on a tight schedule as a new member of Gossip Girl as Georgina Sparks. But did you know she is also a blogger on Cosmopolitan.com and has a jewelry line, Bella Veritas (meaning beautiful truth) since 2006? I surely didn’t know until reader Jessie tipped me on it, thanks!
She has actually written two posts already recapping what she did on set and what she wore and the latest where she talks about Bella Veritas. To get a taste of what her jewels look like, check Milk – although everything is sold out at the moment. But she tips to hit up Nina at Fred Segal, Santa Monica, CA if you want a piece of her…
But I have to admit, the item I’m most excited to wear is the black onyx gold skull necklace from my own jewelry line, Bella Veritas. I started making necklaces as a side hobby and really just for fun (anyone who knows me will tell you I can’t sit still!). Slowly but surely after passing my necklaces out as gifts to my friends I decided to take my necklace-making show on the road! Every piece is one of a kind, handmade by me. I use semiprecious stones like tourmalines, peridots, amethyst, topaz, garnets, etc. And they have an awesome little charm to add some extra bling. I also make bracelets because I think you can never stop layering your jewels! And really, who doesn’t love to add some sparkle to their outfits?
