About Us

Coupling nature and art, The Belle Bain featured handmade jewelry showcasing stones and shells picked from beaches and shorelines throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Each necklace was completely unique, due to the serendipitous find of the stones. Richmond Magazine noted the designs, “With such a variety of color, texture and shape in the beads and stones, each of the Touches of Chesapeake necklaces are totally unique and unexpected...The necklaces are earthy and natural but have a level of refinement and style that elevates them way beyond surf and sand.” In efforts to help clean our waters, portions of the proceeds were donated to The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, an organization whose mission is to help clean and maintain the waters that aided our Nation’s founding in Jamestown, Virginia. With each necklace individually offering hand chosen stones and shells, the necklace line truly offered women a “Touch of the Chesapeake.”
In 2018, The Belle Bain pivoted to solely producing commissioned based artwork with a primary focus in oil, pencil sketches, pastel portraits, and watercolor pen. Beatrice's art can be found through out Virginia in boutiques and galleries for limited time pop-ups and trunk shows.
Staying true to The Belle Bain's purpose, every order still donates a percentage of proceeds to local non-profits that have a mission around environmental & wildlife relief. 

We are art, helping nature's art.
