The modern designer Bettina von Walhoff from California is known for her unique ornaments. Their quaint shapes of brooch-figurines, for example lobsters, parrots and whales, as well as flowers, are hand-made from antique glass, cast glass (leaves and flowers) and sparkling Swarovski crystals. Many of her pieces are tremblers with the moving parts on springs. Flowers, animals and birds – the constantly occurring motifs of ornaments Betina von Walhoff. Made with a sense of humor and distinguished by careful detailed elaboration. In addition to standard size, Bettina and Michelle von Walhoff sometimes produce oversized decorations, making them jewelry for confident women.
Starting to make their jewelry in 1998, her products soon became known in the jewelry market. In addition, eight years later (2006), her daughter Michelle Fuhrman joined Bettina. Accordingly, since then their products have a signature “B + M von Walhof”. Based in Sarasota jewelry designers Bettina and Michelle often produce their creations in limited editions. Therefore, their whimsical and original pieces are in high demand among collectors now.
