Belle Isle Conservatory Collaboration

We're excited to announce our latest partnership with the iconic Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory on Belle Isle. This collaboration marks a harmonious blend of environmental stewardship, artistic ingenuity, and natural beauty, resulting in a breathtaking collection.

We found a perfect complement in the Anna Scripps Conservatory. Our mission to create sustainable, handcrafted jewelry that reflects the strength and resilience of Detroit and the women we employ aligns with their dedication to celebrating the beauty plants and preserving the history of the conservatory. This heartwarming partnership represents a unique opportunity to collaborate in an endeavor that bridges creativity, sustainability, and philanthropy.

The centerpiece of this collaboration is a collection of jewelry items meticulously crafted from repurposed glass collected during the renovation of the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory on Belle Isle. Each piece encapsulates the essence of Detroit's history while embodying Rebel Nell's signature blend of artistry and social impact. The glass, once a part of the conservatory's architectural heritage, has been transformed into stunning, wearable art that tells a story of transformation and revival.

Moreover, the collection is enriched by an exquisite touch of nature itself. Our designers have drawn inspiration from the vibrant blooms and foliage of the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory's gardens, incorporating delicate floral motifs into the jewelry pieces. The result is a harmonious marriage of repurposed glass and blooming beauty, symbolizing the interconnectedness of art and nature.

Belle Isle is one of our favorite places in the city. We are thrilled to partner with the Belle Isle Conservancy in this monumental collaboration highlighting the history and importance of the Conservatory to this community. Together, we've embarked on a journey that not only breathes new life into discarded materials but also celebrates the splendor of nature and history. The collection we've created is a testament to the boundless possibilities of sustainable craftsmanship.

The Rebel Nell x Belle Isle Conservatory collaboration will make its highly anticipated debut on August 25, 2023. This Limited Collection will only have 225 pieces available. Each one will be engraved on the back with its unique identifier, making them truly one of a kind. The collection will contain something for everyone: necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, bottle stoppers, cufflinks, and more. A portion of the proceeds from the collection's sales will directly benefit both organizations, reaffirming our shared commitment to empowering women, promoting sustainability, and preserving Detroit's cultural and natural heritage.
