Bevel Designer: Liz Bloom

Bevel has many talented designers but the force behind Dorus Mhor jewelry is the talented Liz Bloom. Her jewelry is inspired by metal sculptures and textiles. She handcrafts each piece with selected fabrics around the world. Each season involves using the Liberty of London Art Fabric collection which back in the 1890's were the best 'avant garde' textile designs.

Liz Bloom is a Scottish born designer who grew up with one grandfather a silversmith and the other an expert in weaving. Her mother was a dressmaker who taught Liz at an early age. Later on, she graduated with a Fine Art degree in sculpture.

Upon a six month sabbatical, Liz met a button maker and her vision began. From buttons to bead making, Liz incorporated fine, delicate fabrics and hence her line was born. She has had great success in London with fans like Florence Welch. Now in Chicago, Liz works out of her studio creating gems for us all to adore.

The name Dorus Mhor is a tribute to her childhood home meaning "great open doors". Right now, you can sign up for the Bevel waitlist - the higher you are on the list, the earlier access you get to the shows!
