About the Designer
Nevena Bentz was born and raised in Blagoevgrad, a small town on the Balkan Peninsula. The mountains, the forests, the wild flowers, her grandparents’ vineyard and gardens, and the rich folklore of Bulgaria are all a part of who she is. Her curiosity about the world and sense of adventure took her to France and later to America. A law student in France, a lawyer in Texas, a professor in Bulgaria, her life has been one of colorful experiences and people, and a journey marked by the constant pursuit of self-discovery. Through jewelry design and art, Nevena has reclaimed her creative spirit. She strives for her artistic expression to be a celebration of the human spirit and all that is beautiful in life.
Nevena currently resides with her family in Austin, TX.
