Leeann Souza created Verabel Jewelry in 2007. Born out of a love of vintage findings, lockets and all things miniature, the collection first debuted in her Portland, Oregon clothing and accessories boutique. The unique line quickly became a bestseller and an Etsy shop was launched in 2009. After buying out a warehouse of vintage dead stock lockets, Leeann created a collection of colorful Art Lockets. Austin based artist, Alyson Fox, teamed up with Verabel designing an array of geometric illustrations for this wearable art jewelry. The two have enjoyed a successful partnership and continue to collaborate on the Verabel + Fox line.
