Thank you to all who supported VIELÄ Jewelry in 2017. From our retail partners, to our customers online and at shows, and to our vendors, we are grateful for your relationship. It was a wonderful year full of walks in the woods looking for botanicals, beachcoming for shells, and transforming them into precious treasures for you to enjoy. Best wishes for a healthy and happy new year. Be Well!
Museum Store Sunday is only three days away. We invite you to “Be a Patron” at the Barnes Shop on Sunday, November 26, 2017. Holiday shopping at museum stores offers you not only quality gifts filled with inspiration and educational value, but through your purchases, will also directly support your favorite museums. Museum Store Sunday at the Barnes Shop brings you tea tasting, art-inspired gifts, and a Designer Showcase featuring Designer Paul Stewart-Stand of Stewart/Stand and Angela Colasanti of VIELÄ Jewelry. Patrons will receive a free tote bag with any purchase over $50. We hope to see you there! Hours are 10:30-5:00.

Join us on Friday or Saturday from 10-5. Holiday refreshments will be served.
In collaboration with Winterthur Museum, VIELÄ Jewelry is proud to announce the debut of the Lily of the Valley Jewelry Collection, exclusive to Winterthur. Fresh pressed lily of the valley were used to create this sweet necklace and earrings set. Lily of the Valley symbolizes sweetness, good luck and a return of happiness. This fragrant May blooming plant is often sent to family and friends as a symbol of love and affection. It was a favorite of Henry Francis DuPont. The pieces are now available in the Museum Store and Winterthur online.
VIELÄ Jewelry is proud and honored to announce that we are a Founding Sponsor of the first ever Museum Store Sunday event, which will be held on Sunday, November 26, 2017.

Many of these institutions are planning special events that day, and Angela will be hosting a trunk show at The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia.
The event invites you to enjoy the relaxing, inspired and curated shopping experiences of museums and cultural institutions, while directly benefiting the missions and programming of these important institutions. We invite you to Be a Patron on Sunday, November 26, 2017, and support your favorite institutions.
