Welcome to BluBelle Designs. I am an elementary school teacher with a master's degree in education, a Bachelor's in Advertising / Marketing, and a passion for creating. I discovered the Glowforge Laser in early 2021 and it has changed my world. It allows me to make an array of customized gifts by cutting and engraving a wide variety of materials- from wood to leather, acrylic, and even glass.


In 2022 I added the Thunder, a commercial-grade laser with a rotary attachment that allows me to also engrave tumblers. This creative obsession has turned into my small female-run business-BluBellle Designs named after our family's silver lab BluBelle who is always at my side. 

My handmade products can currently be found in four locations- BeeCharmed in both Midlothian and Glen Allen, the Painted Tree in Midlothian, and Artisan Alley in Hopewell, VA.  There you will find a large assortment of handmade earrings, Richmond-themed charcuterie boards, blank boards ready for your customization, and a variety of other custom gifts at every price point. My Richmond and Lakeside-themed products are also available at REVEL Market & Bar in Lakeside, VA. 

One of my favorite things to make are earrings. I use cast acrylics, designer handmade papers, and beautiful Italian leathers which I source from a family-run business - La Garzarara in Italy. I love trying new techniques to make beautiful earrings that are lightweight and fun to wear. They are priced so you can own multiple styles and never feel guilty about buying another pair!

Another area I am focusing on is making personalized closing gifts for real estate agents. My Live Edge Acacia boards are handmade for me by Ashish Homes & Kitchens. I carry several styles and sizes which can all be custom engraved for your clients. Your logo can be added to the back if you wish. I also offer matching coasters, realtor key chains in leather, wood, or acrylic, front door signs, address signs, and other custom gifts.


I am located in Chesterfield, VA, and offer front porch pick-up. I'm happy to ship items if you are not in the area. Contact me with your ideas and I will help you bring them to life.
