Halstead Grant 2015 Top 10 Finalist VIELÄ, Ltd. creates elegant, hand-crafted silver jewelry with textures of the natural world.
President and Designer Angela Colasanti received her B.A. in Art from Moravian College. Her jewelry designs are featured nationally in museum stores, galleries, boutiques and fine art shows. VIELÄ, Ltd also recently received a Small Business Achievement Award from SCORE of Chester and Delaware Counties.
VIELÄ is a Finnish word for “still to come, or yet to be”. It is also an anagram of the word ALIVE. Angela says, “Both of these concepts define what VIELÄ is and what it will become.”
She says, “I walk and collect…the next day, the next place, I collect more. I have no idea what designs will emerge from these textures and objects.” As she samples newly found textures each season, she adds fresh designs to her jewelry collections.
