Betsy Simpson, the designer for Betsy Simpson Handcrafted Jewelry is a native Texan. She attended The University of Texas and obtained her degree in Clothing Design and Fashion Merchandising.
With a degree in fashion, Betsy spent many fun years creating clothes for herself and daughter. She now uses this creative "drive" for her jewelry designing.
Betsy's first job was in retailing, so she loves not only creating the jewelry, but selling and getting to know her customers.
Betsy and her husband have a ranch in the Texas Hill Country and enjoy spending time there relaxing and being with family and friends. She loves the Texas landscape and natural beauty.
Even though Betsy is a true Texan, her mother is from Maine. She and her sisters were lucky enough to spend summers there as children and continue to go there now with their own families. Betsy's diverse background from Texas and the Northeast helps to make her designs unique and classic.
Betsy fashions each piece of her jewelry by hand. She enjoys all facets of her business, from selecting her unique materials, to creating each piece, then sharing the joy of her friends and clients wearing their new jewelry purchase!
Betsy regularly attends gem shows, seeking truly one-of-a-kind elements for her creations. Her continuous research shows in the craftsmanship of each piece in her collection. She travels extensively throughout Texas and the Southwest searching for the most exquisite materials to create her line of handcrafted jewelry.
