My name is Laura Schneider and I am the designer and sole maker of ARELLA. From the materials I source to the stories I create, ARELLA gives me creative freedom to explore different mediums through accessories. I am passionate about the stories and spiritual connections we make to our closest possessions. ARELLA’s mission is to forge connections between the old world and the new through the symbolism of artifact and material. I want to create pieces of art that connects you to your wild spirit and ignites feelings of magic and myth. ARELLA was born from the ranch I grew up on in East Texas which was named after my sisters and I. The first two letters of each name spells ARELLA and the three bulls represent each sister. I continue the legacy and story of the ranch and its wild western spirit through my work.
