From the time Donna Domet could hold a crayon, she knew she’d be an artist. She feels most herself when making something beautiful to share with someone else. She took her urge to create, and her love of fashion and visual art to Ryerson Polytechnic University where she earned a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Fashion Communication. With the skills she learned there, her natural artistic eye, and seventeen years working in various aspects of retail, in 2009, Domet was ready to seriously try her hand at making the jewellery designs she’d long had dancing in her head.
Bellabagu Bracelets & Things was born in a spare bedroom in Domet’s home in Mississauga. From there, Domet sources the finest sterling findings and charms, semi-precious stones and Swarovski pearls and brings them together with imagination and flair to create handmade collections that include necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings and key chains. Bellabagu designs are ever-evolving, but they are always classic with a dash of whimsy and a lot of love.
