Angela Colasanti, Designer
Angela Colasanti is the President and Designer for VIELÄ, Ltd. She received her B.A. in Art from Moravian College and has been designing artisan jewelry for over eleven years. Her jewelry designs are featured nationally in museum stores, cultural institutions, galleries, boutiques and fine art shows. She was recently awarded a 2018 Service Award from the Museum Store Association, a 2016 SCORE Success Award and was a Top Ten Finalist in the prestigious 2015 Halstead Grant Competition, recognizing excellence in both design and business acumen.
Angela begins by sampling textures directly from nature, capturing the detail, beauty and complexity of our surroundings. Wildflowers, grasses, buds, leaves, shells and sea life are part of her palette. Through a multi-step process, she transposes these natural textures into interpretive sterling silver and bronze jewelry, with some accented in gold, pearls, precious and semi-precious gemstones.
