Paula, the creator and designer of Brooklyn/Los Angeles-based Panzell Jewelry, draws loving inspiration for her handcrafted jewelry from books of fantasy & science fiction, along with japanese anime and comic books. She incorporates her affinity with the fantastical into her designs using quirky forms and architectural sights from her world travels.
Paula grew up in the warm Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago where her love for jewelry making began, eventually she moved to Brooklyn NY, and later to Los Angeles CA. Paula graduated from CCUNY with a BA in Creative Writing and quickly found herself the manager of a designer jewelry company. Knowing her strange love for super hero inspired art and making jewelry was what truly made her happy, she finally decided to pursue her longtime passion to create her own brand .
Paula’s unique line of jewelry is entirely handmade in her Los Angeles studio.
Every piece of Panzell Jewelry is embedded with the intention to make you feel like a super human.
