Marisa Goebel La Belle's passion for color and simplicity are the drive behind her clever designs. This is reflected in her award winning patented earring concept. Celestial in design, sophisticated in concept and boldly feminine.
Atelier Marisa was launched in 1987 to great acclaim and is a tribute to Marisa's expertise in Tahitian, South Sea and Akoya pearls. Marisa is the author of a definitive article on Polynesian South Sea Pearls, featured in the magazine Gems and Gemology. Although she is fascinated with pearls, she is equally at home with precious stones. Journalist, Sarah Siegel describes Marisa's work as, "Creativity in Motion" in an article published in JQ Magazine.
Born in Mexico of an American mother and German father, Marisa was surrounded and introduced to many art forms, pre-Columbian, fine art, and the local arts and crafts that are part of the Mexican folklore. It was in High school when she took a jewelry class that these influences began to flourish. She received a Graduate Gemologist degree and later studied in the renowned Fachhochschule Für Gestaltung (School of Design) in Pforzheim, Germany. There she learned technical knowledge and developed expertise that has influenced her innovative construction and elegant composition.
