The roots of Natalie B. are in Natalie Balker's southern California native upbringing, but the aesthetic is worldly in honor of the designer’s extensive travels. A true designer, creator, and visionary, both she and the collection are the perfect mix of modern bohemian and classic Parisian. Growing up shopping vintage markets and antique fleas with her mother, Natalie B, if not born with the eye, developed a keen knack early on for recognizing one-of-a-kind gems and unique design elements.
While she has certainly developed her own, Natalie’s eye for style is family deep. Her mother, owns an antique and vintage emporium, and her father was a Hollywood costumer. With movies sets and glamour being no stranger to Natalie’s lifestyle, accessorizing women with treasures found in her mothers inventory quickly became a passion. As a young adult, and with fashion in her blood, Natalie B began not only attending the vintage fashion trade shows, but also traveled to Europe to educate herself on design tradition all the while purchasing and stocking for her very own collection. It was then Natalie began to restyle her favorite vintage pieces into her own unique designs. Antique watches became bracelets, pendants turned into drop necklaces - giving them all a modern twist - thus over time this Natalie began to build a style all her own and Natalie B Jewelry was born!
The collection quickly became a staple in Southern California boutiques which allowed Hollywood celebrities to take notice of the jewelry and fashion editors quickly followed suit with articles of the unique designs, style and quality; Natalie B Jewelry became a must-wear and has remained a household name and is currently stocked in the best boutiques all over the world.
25+ years later and still going strong, the collections range from trendy to classic; the pieces are an eclectic mix of times and trends. Scouting style throughout the world, Natalie journeys to beautiful places such as France, Istanbul, Vienna and Milan to create her beautiful collection with an unmatched style. This coupled with the weekly trips to those same vintage markets and bazaars of her upbringing, round out her specialty style.
Natalie B credits her aesthetic and creation to intuition, meaning the collection will forever be something extremely personal, close to heart and a true work of art utilizing her sense of timelessness.
