Isela Arredondo (Marysol’s Jewelry) was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco (Mexico) and has been a jewelry designer since 2004. She appoints her emotional healing from domestic violence to her art. She finds comfort in taking pieces of jewelry and making something whole out of something that was not. Isela finds her inspiration in being a strong role model for her daughter. Isela’s art has helped to improve her self-worth. She is the first in her family to attend college and is pursuing a degree in nursing. Isela exemplifies the “pay it forward” philosophy of H*Art Gallery by having taught her art form to other women who have experienced her former situation through our H*ArtWorks program, in an association with Partnership for Children, Families, and Adults.
